Wage Stage

Most of the food service workers downtown serving our beloved tourists earn minimum wage every year. Our low-income workers waited two long years for our beloved governor to raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour. Will our City Council raise the minimum wage in Santa Barbara to $12 an hour this year, instead of waiting for seven more long years to raise it to the livable wage of $15 an hour? The rents go up every year here, and a minimum wage of $12 an hour, this year, is the best way for our City Council and mayor to make our tourist workers’ experience fair.
