SAN JOSE, California
Nine cities around the Bay Area already have hit the $15 target today. They include Mountain View and Sunnyvale, which will be requiring businesses to kick in an extra 65 cents in 2019 for inflation to $15.65 per hour– the highest in Santa Clara County.  Workers in Richmond, El Cerrito, San Jose, Palo Alto, Los Altos, Cupertino and Santa Clara will all make at least $15 per hour starting Jan. 1 — a jump from current minimums in those cities that range from about $13 to $13.60 an hour. In San Mateo, minimum wage will go to $15 per hour for all jobs except those at 501(C)3-classified nonprofits, which will have a $13.50 minimum wage.
In Belmont, the minimum wage will increase from $12.50 to $13.50 per hour on Tuesday, putting the city on its path to $15 per hour in 2020. Redwood City’s minimum wage will increase from $11 per hour to $13.50 — eventually getting to $15 an hour in 2020.   Oakland’s minimum wage increase will be more modest, from $13.23 to $13.80.
With Bay Area unemployment at near record lows and businesses booming in this economy the Bay Area is likely to continue to be a driving force in California’s job growth overall. 
With record job growth in this economy a key question is on the mind of many companies and job applicants: The cost of housing.   Where is the job force going to live ?  Worker advocates and many elected officials are trying to tackle this issue.
