Raise Up San Diego is a community coalition focused on bringing earned sick days and a better minimum wage to the region.
As of July 2014, the San Diego City Council passed the Earned Sick Leave-Minimum Wage ordinance which would set a fair minimum standard of 5 earned sick days and a local minimum wage ($11.50 per hour phased in over a three year period). In September, the measure was overturned by a referendum effort funded by the national hotel lobby. The San Diego City Council unanimously voted to put the measure on the 2016 ballot.
