The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator to review and accept the fiscal year 2013-14 Living Wage Ordinance Annual Report and conduct a first reading of an amendment to the County’s Living Wage Ordinance to raise the wage to $13 per hour. The current living wage rate is $10.50 per hour with health benefits and $12.10 per hour without health benefits. The County does not have the legal authority to adjust the minimum wage; the living wage rate is for employers that receive contracts or subsidies from the local government. Staff recommends that the board accept the report and schedule a merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. November 25.
The Board reviewed and accepted the annual report, conducted the first reading of the ordinance and scheduled the merit hearing for November 25.
