San Francisco’s Minimum Wage Goes Up In January 2012

Topics: New Laws & Legislation, Wage & Hour Issues

San Francisco's minimum wage, which currently is $9.92 per hour, is increasing to $10.24 per hour effective January 1, 2012.  This makes San Francisco the first city in the country with a minimum wage in excess of $10 per hour.  The minimum wage increase is tied to a new law passed by San Francisco voters in 2004 which automatically increases the city's minimum wage in accordance with inflation.  Employers with employees who work more than two hours in a workweek inside San Francisco city limits should ensure their payroll practices are updated to reflect the new minimum wage.
