Minimum wage workers get 10 cent raise in San Jose

SAN JOSE (BCN) — Minimum wage workers in San Jose will be receiving a $.10 per hour raise in January, city officials announced Friday.

The raise comes under an initiative approved by San Jose voters in 2012 and will increase the minimum wage from $10.30 to $10.40 per hour.

The increase is based on the Consumer Price Index, which increased by .7 percent from August 2015 to August 2016, according to city officials.

The San Jose Minimum Wage Initiative was approved by San Jose voters in November of 2012 and took effect on March 11, 2013.

The law requires employers operating within city limits of San Jose to pay their employees a minimum of $10 per hour with annual CPI increases.
