S.F. Minimum Wage Rate: $15.59 as of July 1
The San Francisco minimum wage increases to $15.59 per hour on July 1, 2019.
San Francisco voters passed Proposition J in November 2014, raising the San Francisco minimum wage. The proposition included predetermined increases up to $15.00 on July 1, 2018. Beginning in 2019, the minimum wage rate increases every July 1 based on increases in the Consumer Price Index.
The City calculated the July 1, 2019 rate using the process required by S.F. Admin Code Section 12R.4. The Consumer Price Index for urban and clerical workers in the San Francisco area increased3.934% between 2017 and 2018 . The City applied that increase to the current $15.00 minimum wage to find the new July 1 2019 rate of $15.59.
