Minimum Wage Changes for San Jose

The San José City Council voted to raise its minimum wage to $15 per hour by Jan. 1, 2019 in three steps ($12 in 2017, $13.50 in 2018, and $15 in 2019), with automatic annual cost of living increases (based on the CPI, up to 5 percent) every year thereafter.
Since September of 2015, Mayor Liccardo has worked with a coalition of mayors from throughout Silicon Valley, as well as representatives the Cities Association of Santa Clara County, to prepare an economic analysis studying the impacts of a potential wage increase and to develop a common proposal that each elected leader could bring back to their city councils.
