Living Wage Passes Unanimously

The City Council unanimously passed a living wage ordinance at its Monday, July 16, 2007, meeting. A minor change was made in section 9 of the ordinance from "Every City contract, lease, license..." to Every City contract, lease, license agreement..."

Living wage ordinances are already in effect in Hayward, Oakland, and Richmond. In September 2005, Superior Court Judge Steven Brick upheld Hayward's 1999 living wage law against Cintas Corp.
