    The one spot of sanity along the California coast. However the City Council with a majority of Democrats plan to override him.

    Mayor vetoes minimum wage hike

    DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO — Mayor Kevin Faulconer on Friday vetoed a hike in the city’s minimum wage hike, starting the clock on a likely council override and another step toward a looming referendum drive against the controversial legislation.

    “This ordinance unfairly pits working families and our city against economic realities that will make it even harder for San Diego to thrive,” said Faulconer, following through on his vow to veto the measure. “I cannot support putting the brakes on our economy.”

    The City Council earlier this summer voted 6-3 along party lines — Democrats in favor and Republicans against — to approve City Council President Todd Gloria’s proposal to raise the minimum wage to $11.50 an hour within the next three years. The measure also requires businesses to give workers five paid sick days a year.

    Gloria vowed the veto won't stand.

    “Thankfully the City Council understands that our working families are struggling and I believe will act to override this veto,” Gloria said. “When 38 percent of San Diego workers don’t earn enough to make ends meet, something must be done. That is why the mayor’s veto of this reasonable, common sense measure is disappointing.”

    The council has 30 days to reverse the mayor’s action....

    $11.50 sounds a little low for SD. I think they should ask for more, how could they make ends meet on 11.50?

    With regular hefty raises for good attendance. You can make triple the money being an apprentice welder or pipe fitter. These morons never snap to the fact that lower retatail and similar positions are only intended to be training positions and pathways or stepping stones if you will to "real" employment.

    The left only pretends to support "blue collar" workers for their votes, they look down on them with great disdain.
