You know about the Federal minimum wage, and how states can set minimums that are higher. Did you know local authorities can do the same? For instance, San Francisco has it’s own city-wide minimum wage that’s higher than the rest of the state of California.
And now, come January 1, 2012, it’s set to go even higher. On that date, the San Francisco minimum wage will rise to $10.24 an hour. This rate applies to anybody who works more than two hours inside San Francisco city limits in the span of one work week.
So, if you’re located in or around San Francisco, or you have employees who are going to be working in the city for more than 2 hours a week after January 1, better make sure your payroll system is updated with the new rate.
