tv Special Full Board of Supervisors 72916 SFGTV July 31, 2016 6:40pm-7:01pm PDT
raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by and people will work this fourth of july weekend we are celebrating our countries birthday but recognizing in the celebration throughout the weekend people like the people had that are standing with me are working whether the restaurants or hotels or health care workers and others and and we all feel for working people that is hard in our expensive city to survive unless you have a december sent wage that's why a couple of years ago i destined or joibd the board of supervisors full board of supervisors to place before the voters an $15 an hour minimum wage and people that work in all those industries we did it
together and we're celebrating because today it goes from $12.25 an hour to $13 and up to 15 and after that cpi takes over i want to remind everybody this city was brought together with our labor unions and your working families made up of all the exit are represents our city and got this done in a strong collaboration with everyone and showed not only the cities around the bay area but the state of california if we got together and thought about people's lives what glosses the challenges every day we can get this done for them i think we're happy here to see the wages go up are rehappy yeah, we'll have more to celebrate in addition to, of course, the bitter of our nation and things we enjoy we
picked this date it is a significant move and i also want to say that we know that our workforce all those people's here they are still an affordability gap so this is going to help people he you go that suggest that a lot of people are working two jobs to support their families we want to celebrate those moms we're all ushth together to help them but for also myself and mayor libby schaaf of oakland that recognizes our workforce is more regional than ever do more than benefit the residents that work in our city and so we joined. >> today and cities that are committed along with cities like new york and seattle and los angeles and portland and the others also raised their minimum wage we want to the state of california to do the same thing
because what could happen i think all the labor advocates know and people that we raised our minimum wage just and ourselves in the city of san francisco or just in oakland we would probably be golden state talent that belongs to where everybody lives and not as affordable to them as it is to those we're helping so mayor libby schaaf and along with the united health care workers started a process and emigrate hundreds of thousands of snatches set the minimum wage higher of $15 an hour tour the state of california in uniting all the cities with the labor unions and workforces and people good minded across the region we got the governors attendance and the state of california attendance such that a few months ago governor jerry brown
signed the legislation to raise the states entire minimum wage for everyone for $15 an hour over a period of time those movements wouldn't happen unless we place the needs of working-class families that work hard to build that consensus i'm here to join in the celebration and here to say that i'm going to be working this weekend as well as in addition the celebrating but also acknowledge the people that always serve us at the hotels and restaurants and people that are working the janitorial and building maintenance and all working class in the city we're there to be of help this will be consistent raising the minimum wage to attack affordability challenges is part of solution paid parental leave is part of the solution making sure that we work so that
no one is a theft of their wages that's why your head of the department the labor enforcement is joining us with the advocates of people that earn those wages i'm saying they earn every single penny they deserve to make sure they get it in their hands that's why we announce these and make sure that everybody is prepared adequately ahead of time to make sure those wages are paid and wage theft we have to make sure that our workforce that speaks many languages don't get capture and been take advantage of this is how we really in city year ago we have a benefit and make sure that everybody obtains that benefit i want to say at that moment i'm proud of the working folks in san francisco but the
intensify region and proud of state of california and your legislation for working with the governor to a raise the minimum wage that adds to the celebration of the fourth of july and makes that more meaningful and then we hope that the entire nation does this as well question hear a lot of stories from a lot of places across the country that the liveability is under challenged or we're taking care of business in the city and state and let's go on the national level and support of the prosperous country to make sure they get a december sent wage wsip think we have paula to speak for her experience and what that means to her paula >> (clapping.) >> good morning. i want to again thank the mayor mayor ed lee for being the vera person
