Measure D
City of San Jose. Minimum Wages: Increase 25%

SVTA recommends a NO vote against Measure D.


Shall an ordinance be adopted that (1) requires (a) payment of minimum wages in San José at $10 per hour [currently $8] with an annual increase, if any, based on the Consumer Price Index beginning January 1, 2014; (b) City enforcement through fines, penalties, civil actions, or revocation or suspension of permits or licenses; and (c) voter approval of substantive changes to the ordinance; and (2) allows private enforcement through civil actions?

See the measure and the arguments in favor of and against, at the web site of the League of Women Voters, here.
