We, the undersigned residents of the City of Sebastopol, support a $15 an hour citywide minimum wage 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 city. According to the UC Berkeley Labor Center, 1000 low-wage workers in the city 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.​ We urge you to continue your work to ensure economic development and livability in this city and pass a $15 min wage in Sebastopol.
