Local Living Wage Ordinance Not Local
Hayward, California has a “living wage” ordinance. This is a local law that requires employers to pay employees more than state or federal minimum wage. Such ordinances typically apply only to employers with city contracts, but San Francisco applies its local minimum wage ordinance to all employers.
Hayward could require city contractors to pay employees under the Living Wage Ordinance, even though the work was performed outside of Hayward.
