Legal Authority

In 2003, San Francisco voters passed a local minimum wage, becoming the first local jurisdiction to pass a minimum wage rate higher than the federal or state minimum wage.  In 2014, San Francisco voters passed a new initiative to increase the local minimum wage to $15.00 per hour by July 1, 2018, and to adjust the wage rate each July 1 thereafter based on the annual increase in the Consumer Price Index.
