In Required Second Vote, Council Again Approves Minimum Wage Hike

In a required second vote, San Diego City Council members approved a series of minimum wage hikes.

By a 6-3 vote along party lines, the council approved the incremental boosting of the wage to $11.50 by 2017.

San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce CEO Jerry Sanders expressed confidence that Mayor Kevin Faulconer would veto the measure. However, the current vote breakdown would make an override of a veto likely.

“We are all sympathetic to people who are struggling to make ends meet, particularly in a national economy that is still recovering from a recession, but this is the wrong solution,” Sanders said in a statement.

Sanders said the chamber is exploring other options to oppose the City Council’s action, which could possibly mean a voter referendum to void the minimum wage ordinance.
