San Diego's Minimum Wage Increase Goes Into Effect July 11
Todd Gloria, councilman, city of San Diego
The city of San Diego is working on how to implement and enforce its new earned sick leave and minimum wage ordinance.
Wages will tentatively increase from $10 to $10.50 an hour on July 11, the same day the city is scheduled to certify election results.
Proposition I also provides workers five paid sick days per year.
The ordinance calls for the creation of an enforcement office that would take complaints and investigate violations. Employers could be fined up to $1,000 per violation.
San Diego City Councilman Todd Gloria, who led the effort to raise the minimum wage, discusses how the city plans to make sure employers comply with the wage increase on KPBS Midday Edition Wednesday.
