San Diego’s minimum wage will rise from the current $8 per hour to $13.09 per hour over the next three years under a plan City Council President Todd Gloria and President Pro Tem Sherri Lightner unveiled on Wednesday.

If the proposal is approved by voters in November, it is projected to boost the wages of roughly 200,000 San Diegans by an average of $2,800 per year once it is fully phased in.

New York Push for $15 Minimum Wage in Legislature

State bill would require $15 an hour minimum wage at chains and large businesses

Sen. Daniel Squadron and Albany legislators announce a bill to require a $15 an hour wage at large businesses.

Big chain stores and other large businesses would have to pay their workers at least $15 an hour under state legislation introduced by Sen. Daniel Squadron.

The mandate would apply to chains that have at least 11 locations nationwide – including big box stores and fast food restaurants – businesses that bring in at least $50 million a year in revenue, and transportation-related businesses like airport contractors.

The $15 minimum would be indexed to inflation.
