Alameda City, California, Enacts Minimum Wage Ordinance
The City of Alameda, California has passed an ordinance establishing a
local minimum wage that applies to all employees who work at least two
hours in a calendar week within the city as follows:

  •  July 1, 2019 – $13.50
  •  July 1, 2020 – $15.00

Beginning July 1, 2022 and on July 1 of every year thereafter, the
minimum wage will increase based on the cost of living with no increase
greater than five percent. Employers may not use a tip credit for tipped workers.
