Redwood City is Closer to Adopting Increased Minimum Wage
Redwood City concluded its one-on-one outreach to businesses and hosted a couple of stakeholder meetings with business owners and residents to discuss increasing the minimum wage higher than the state’s. Overall, the city is receiving positive feedback on increasing the minimum wage to $15 by 2019. Council members are expected to vote on an ordinance in March. If adopted, Redwood City will be the third jurisdiction in the county with an increased minimum wage.
