By 2018, San Francisco’s Minimum Wage will Increase to $15

Effective January 1, 2015, the minimum wage in San Francisco increased to $11.05 per hour. The increase is a result of the November 2014 ballot measure Proposition J that was overwhelmingly approved by San Francisco residents in November 2014. Proposition J was passed to gradually increase San Francisco’s minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2018.

July 1, 2016: $13 per hour

July 1, 2017: $14 per hour
