Two years after originally passing the City Council, the ordinance to increase the minimum wage and provide earned sick leave will officially be on the June 2016 ballot. San Diegans will finally have their voices heard and will be able to vote to raise the wage for over 170,000 hard-working San Diegans, enough people to fill every seat in Petco Park four times over.
When voters pass this measure on June 7th 2016, the phase-in approved by the City Council will go into effect immediately, meaning wages will increase to $10.50 the next day, and then to $11.50 on January 1st 2017. Every person who works in San Diego will also have access to five earned sick days. This measure is long overdue.
Will you please stand with me to give over 170,000 hard-working San Diegans a raise and earned sick leave on June 7th? Please visit www.raisethewagesd.com to find out how to get involved. ~Council member Todd Gloria
