We expect that Council will pass this last phase, marking the end of a campaign that began in 2007. This last phase should include:
-Extending the living wage requirement for contractors to all contracts above $30,000 (currently the policy includes contracts from $30,000-$200,000. This last phase extends to contracts beyond $200,000)
-Raises the City Living Wage to the new rate of $11.85 and $10.35w/ health insurance adjusted by Just Economics.
-Adds language for regular adjustment of the living wage in line with how Just Economics adjusts for inflation.
