Tonight: Menlo Park council set to vote on minimum wage ordinance

The Menlo Park City Council could vote to approve a citywide minimum wage ordinance tonight (Sept. 10).

If the ordinance is approved, the council would be following in the footsteps of other Bay Area cities that are seeking to bring the local minimum wage to at least $15 an hour in advance of state-mandated minimum wage increases, which are set to reach $15 an hour by 2023.

As currently drafted, an ordinance, if passed by Oct. 10, could result in a citywide minimum wage of $15 an hour that would take effect on Jan. 1, 2020. The minimum wage could also rise in accordance with the Consumer Price Index in the future, based on increases in the cost of living.
