San Jose’s Measure D, which will increase the current city’s minimum wage from $8 to $10 per hour effective March 2013, passed with overwhelming voter support.
San Jose is now one of the two cities in California whose minimum wage has gone up independently of the state's. San Francisco has enforced its own minimum wage for many years. There are only a handful of other cities nationwide that set their own minimum wages: Washington, D.C., Santa Fe and Albuquerque, N.M.
Household employers in San Jose whose pay their employees minimum wage need to adjust their salary to reflect this new rate in March 2013.
