We, the undersigned residents of Marin County, support a $15 an hour countywide minimum wage for the phased in by July 1 2020 (rather than Jan 2023 with the State of California). The law will cover all employees who work at least two hours a week within the county. According to the UC Berkeley Labor Center, 32,000 low-wage workers in the county will receive a wage increase, and when fully phased in, the average earnings of affected workers will increase by $2900 annually. Workers who will benefit by the law are 33 years old on average, contribute one-half of their family’s annual income and the majority are women, immigrants, and workers of color.
