New San Francisco Minimum Wage: Expect Higher Prices on Food
Employees that perform work in San Francisco, including part-time and temporary employees, must be paid no less than the San Francisco minimum wage, currently $15.00 per hour.
On July 1, 2019, the San Francisco minimum wage will increase to $15.59. On July 1, 2019, and each year thereafter, the minimum wage rate will be adjusted based on the annual increase in the Consumer Price Index.
