In Case You Missed It: Santa Clara Moves One Step Closer to $15 by ‘19

Earlier this week, the City of Santa Clara moved one step closer to reaching a $15 minimum wage by 2019. Led by Vice Mayor Dominic Caserta, the City Council voted unanimously to spend 90 days conducting outreach to help determine its schedule of increases. The message from the people in the packed Council Chambers was clear: to reach $15 by 2019, joining 7 other Silicon Valley cities who will raise the wage faster than mandated by the State of California. The vote on the minimum wage increase schedule is set to come before the Council in July.
