Burlingame Seeking to Increase Minimum Wage
Burlingame may be joining six other cities in the county that support low-wage workers through local minimum wage ordinances. Their City Council hosted a study session that primarily drew support from residents and organizations to advance minimum wage. The City Council directed their staff to contact key stakeholders like small businesses owners and come back soon with a draft ordinance. San Carlos, Half Moon Bay and East Palo Alto are currently exploring similar policies. Get Healthy SMC continues to share its Low Wage Worker Profile with local decision makers and help partners better understand the health impacts of financial security.
