The City of San Francisco will be raising its minimum wage to $13 per hour, beginning on July 1.
This announcement comes six months prior to the State of California’s next minimum wage increase. San Francisco’s minimum wage increase comes as part of Proposition J, which was passed with a vote of more than 76 percent in 2014.
The new poster, which is required, can be found on the Minimum Wage Ordinance page of the Office of Labor and Standards Enforcement’s website. The city’s minimum wage is expected to reach $15 an hour by the year 2018. Future increases are also expected; however, they are tied to the Consumer Price Index.
The minimum wage rate in San Francisco is scheduled to climb to $14 an hour in 2017, before hitting $15 an hour in 2018.
