The opportunity to earn ten dollars an hour at the minimum wage rate coming in California won a supportive vote on the San Diego city council, at its MOnday meeting. San Diego's own local minimum wage ordinance passed the council.
The ordinance sets a lower limit for sick days San Diego workers can earn during a year at 5 days.
Local workers can count on higher minimum wage without relying on the state guarantee. The local wage hits ten dollars an hour in 2017, after the state minimum.
