​We, the undersigned residents of the City of Sonoma, 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 2 hours a week within the city. According to the UC Berkeley Labor Center, 2000 low-wage workers in our city will see their wages 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, City Council, to continue the work you've done to help support our community's economic development by ensuring a more livable minimum wage in the City of Sonoma.
