EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

On October 16, 2018, the City Council approved an increase to the citywide minimum wage to $15.00 an hour by July 1, 2020. Beginning July 1, 2022 and on July 1 every year thereafter, the minimum wage then in effect shall be adjusted by the increase in the cost of living but in no event shall the increase be greater than five (5%) percent. Currently, the State minimum wage for employers with 26 employees or more is $15.00 an hour. On March 10, 2022, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has released that the prices in the San Francisco area, as measured by the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) over the last 12 months rose 5.2 percent.

Staff is recommending that the City Council approve a resolution amending the City of Alameda (City) Part-Time Salary Schedule to implement the $15.75 an hour minimum wage. The estimated fiscal impact to the City is $130,000 in annual salary costs, primarily in the Recreation and Parks and Library Departments.
