Sunnyvale announced a new increase to $11.00 per hour for their citywide minimum wage. The wage and the new posting take effect July 1, 2016.
The new rate reflects another step in a series of staged increases that will lead to a $15 per hour minimum wage rate by 2018, as identified in Sunnyvale’s Minimum Wage Ordinance (MWO).
The City also removed a sentence from the post language detailing the indexing provision, but that deletion does not change the ordinance’s intent to adjust the minimum wage rate annually based on inflation beginning in 2019.
Employers who are subject to the Sunnyvale Business License Tax or who maintain a facility in Sunnyvale must pay to each employee who performs at least two (2) hours of work per week in Sunnyvale.
