Results from a countywide employee salary compensation study determined nearly 300 employees would be positively impacted by the increase, which will go into effect on February 16th of this year. New county employees who are hired after February 16th for positions with a lower hourly rate will receive the $15 per hour rate after being employed for six months.

“We all deserve a livable wage and our employees work hard to support our county in every aspect you can think of. They deserve a wage that allows them to better support their families,” said Commissioner Adrian Garcia

This is the first countywide minimum wage increase.
