SEIU Local 105 janitors, healthcare, and airport workers across our city celebrated with community allies, and Denver City Council members the signing of a city-wide raise for all workers!
From the Denver Post, “The new law requires employers to bump hourly employees to at least $12.85 on Jan. 1, with a second raise to $14.77 following at the start of 2021, and a third to $15.87 in 2022. After that, the new law mandates that it will then be adjusted annually for inflation using the Consumer Price Index.”
“Public comment was overwhelmingly, if not entirely, in favor of the law, which places Denver as the first Colorado city to raise the local minimum wage. Ultimately, the council voted 11-0.”
