San Diego voters will decide on a minimum wage increase

San Diego voters will decide on a minimum wage increase

Voters will get a chance on June 7 to decide whether the city should have a higher minimum wage than the $10 an hour required by the state.

City Council members voted Monday to place incremental minimum wage increases up to $11.50 on the June primary ballot.

The council initially approved the increases in summer 2014, but they never took effect after a referendum campaign gathered enough signatures to require a public vote.

If approved by a simple majority of voters, the proposal would make the city's minimum wage $10.50 as soon as the election results are certified, then increase to $11.50 on Jan. 1, 2017.
