Increased San Francisco Minimum Wage Will Be Highest in the Nation

21 December 2011

Employment Alert

San Francisco is increasing its minimum wage from US$9.92 to US$10.24, making it the first city in the nation to require a minimum wage above US$10.00 per hour. The increased amount, which takes effect on January 1, 2012, is more than US$2.00 above the California state minimum wage (currently US$8.00) and nearly US$3.00 more than the federal minimum wage (currently US$7.25). The 2012 increase is a product of Proposition L, passed in San Francisco in 2003, which requires the city to increase its minimum wage each year using a formula tied to inflation and cost of living.
