Hourly Minimum Wage Will Increase to $16.85 Effective Jan. 1, 2024
Many San Diegans will soon see an increase in their pay when the City’s minimum wage goes up. Effective Jan. 1, 2024, employees who perform at least two hours of work in one or more calendar weeks of the year within the geographic boundaries of the City of San Diego will receive a minimum wage increase from $16.30 to $16.85 an hour. The change is per the City’s Earned Sick Leave and Minimum Wage Ordinance, approved in 2016.
“Increasing the minimum wage in San Diego is essential to ensure that workers can afford necessities like food, housing, and healthcare,” Mayor Todd Gloria said. “This puts more money in people’s pockets, which boosts our economy.”
