Worker Justice

In June of 2016, San Diego won their own minimum wage and earned sick day victory, when voters approved a measure to increase the minimum wage to $10.50 an hour immediately and increased it to $11.50 in 2017. This puts San Diego ahead of the state by a dollar and with 5 earned sick days instead of 3. Now ACCE and a broad coalition of community and labor partners are organizing to ensure that the City of San Diego is properly enforcing the new minimum wage ordinance.
