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.
