Employer Alert: San Francisco Minimum Wage Increase
Topics: New Laws & Legislation
The San Francisco Office of Labor Standards Enforcement announced last Friday that the City's minimum wage will increase from $9.36 per hour to $9.79 per hour effective January 1, 2009. The increase is triggered by the San Francisco Minimum Wage Ordinance, which was passed by voters in 2003 and calls for annual rate adjustments.
The federal minimum wage still stands at $6.55 per hour, while the California State minimum wage is currently $8.00 per hour. For more information on San Francisco's Minimum Wage Ordinance and required posters, click here.
