San Jose voters approved a minimum wage of $10 per hour for most covered employees working within the city limits of San Jose. This new wage rate will go into effect on March 11, 2013 – 90 days after the official certification of the November election results.
The city is preparing for compliance with the new minimum wage rate and has issued a fact sheet and will update this Minimum Wage Ordinance webpage as information becomes available.
“We’re ramping up now to develop policies and procedures, mechanisms for reporting and public outreach to provide public and business education so that we all can be ready on March 11,” said Nina Grayson, director of the San Jose Office of Equality Assurance.
