Living Wage Ordinance

Living Wage 500

The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on March 21, 2023 to raise the county’s Living Wage an additional 2.26 percent to $17.65 an hour, effective July 1, 2023.

The increase will expand to cover existing contracts on Sept. 30, 2023. It generally applies to private companies with six or more employees, if they supply $25,000 annually or more in contracted services to the county, and to nonprofits that have 25 or more employees and supply more than $50,000 annually in services to the county. The requirements also apply to entities that annually receive more than $100,000 in economic development assistance. All county government suppliers must certify they have complied with the Living Wage ordinance during the contracting process.
