San Francisco will get a vote on a $15 minimum wage

San Francisco won’t be outdone by Seattle. San Francisco’s November ballot will include a measure raising the city’s minimum wage to $15 an hour just months after Seattle was put on its way to $15 by its mayor and city council. In San Francisco:

The compromise announced at City Hall would increase the city’s current hourly base pay, $10.74, to $12.25 next May 1, then to $13 in July 2016 and $1 each subsequent year until it reaches $15 in 2018. That would bring the annual pay for a full-time minimum-wage worker to $31,000.The deal means that labor activists, who had filed a separate ballot measure to raise the wage to $15 by 2017, will drop their effort.
