It's a five year plan that's a bit of a surprise even to city council members, says ABC 7 News San Francisco.
The proposal comes from the city's labor commission. One councilwoman described the city's labor commission's report as being "unsolicited."
But tonight, the city council will consider the labor commission's request to continue to increase the minimum wage to $19 by 2020. The commission explained the amount is higher than what other cities are proposing because it aims to help employees cover future medical costs, reports ABC.
As if businesses can magically raise wages above marginal revenue product. Perhaps they should look at what has already occurred in cities like Oakland and Seattle where the minimum wage has recently been raised.
