I heard on the radio that the city council has overridden the mayor's veto, and this is going to happen, and it will spread

The San Diego City Council voted Monday to raise the city's minimum wage as an ordinance, meaning it won't go to a public vote.

The council voted 6-3 to pass the ordinance, which will raise the minimum wage to $11.50 an hour by 2017. Council members Mark Kersey, Scott Sherman and Lorie Zapf, who are Republicans, voted against the measure. The six council members who approved the measure are all Democrats.

City Council President Todd Gloria, who drafted the proposal, said the council's vote made history in San Diego.

"We are raising up San Diego in a meaningful, responsible way that benefits our lowest-paid neighbors, our economy and our city as a whole," Gloria said. "San Diego is standing up and demonstrating that we value hard work and fair pay."
Minimum Wage Laws

At least 10 other U.S. municipalities have enacted minimum wage laws, according to a report by UC Berkeley researchers. They are:

1) Albuquerque, New Mexico

2) Bernalillo County, New Mexico

3) Montgomery County, Maryland

4) Prince George's County, Maryland

5) San Francisco

6) San Jose

7) Santa Fe, New Mexico

8) Santa Fe County, New Mexico

9) Washington, D.C.

10) Richmond
Twitter

Under the ordinance, the minimum wage in San Diego will rise to $9.75 an hour at the end of this year, then grow to $10.50 an hour on Jan. 1, 2016, and then $11.50 an hour on Jan. 1, 2017. The proposal includes no exemptions for any industry or business, according to Gloria's office.

The City Council will now develop an enforcement ordinance "to ensure the adopted workforce strengthening measure is met," according to a statement from Gloria sent after the council's vote.

The current minimum wage in San Diego is $9 an hour after a state-mandated increase this month. The state wage will rise to $10 an hour on Jan. 1, 2016.

<quoted text>you want me to post a few web sites on how to live on 7.25 an hour ? millions of americans are doing it. you can too. just tighten your belt a notch or two and eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. you dont need cablevision, air conditioniag, and many other things that you feel your ENTITLED to. im sick of you liberals whining when i see mexicans living for less than that. agree ? or are you going to say something stupid.
Boy, someone sure has A LOT of bitterness from years of being lonely, old, and never earning anything they have.

Again, you're the only POS that feels "entitled" in that you feel entitled to pay no taxes, entitled to hate the working poor despite most of your taxes going to corporate subsidies with very little going to welfare, and entitled to feel as though you have any kind of an informed opinion to give regarding anything.

Do I need to link to the Republicans' own studies that show that on average in America, an individual must make $13.00 an hour to afford to live (and that's with no vehicle, no student loans, no internet, no air conditioning, no money spent on clothes, entertainment, or cable, etc.), or do I need to cover the hundreds of economic reasons the minimum wage should be lifted?

I mean, I know that no facts sink into your elderly and dense skull, but your grammatically poor, bullsh_t rants are getting old.

Air, water, food and soil not laden with unsafe chemicals, wild natural places not overrun with machinery, industry, and idiots with guns on ATVs, fair laws for all with no special interests, affordable health care, a living wage, a decent education, and the usual legal rights and freedoms. That will do for starters.

Wow that was dumb. Pilgrims didn't establish this nation. They just began the genocide required.

Our founding fathers weren't Christians. Hence, the amazingly secular founding documents.

Get over it.

Religion is evil and is a direct threat to the survival of civilization, proven in every time and in every place. It never brings propserity, only suffering. Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine, Jefferson, GW - these guys were acutely aware of this fact.

The effect of a higher minimum wage is almost nothing, except for an improved local economy.

Studies look at what happened when cities raised minimum wage

Raising the minimum wage doesnÂ’t have a drastic, negative impact on employment, according to university researchers who have studied pay hikes in other cities.
