The Engaged Electorate

Thanks to a 60% voter approval rate, SF passed  Proposition L in 2003. This provision requires that the city enforce an increase in the minimum wage every year that correlates with inflation.  That means, if you want to get down to dollars and cents, that this New Year’s Day,  SF’s hourly minimum wage will rise from $9.92 to $10.24
