Employees working in the fast-food and healthcare sectors are set to receive wage increases this year thanks to state laws signed by Governor Newsom last year. Employees of fast-food chains with more than 60 outlets nationwide (e.g., Chipotle, Subway) will receive $20/hr. beginning on April 1. In June, health care workers will earn a minimum of $18, $21 or $23 an hour, depending on what type of facility employs them, with a path towards $25/hr. in 2027.
MEF’s latest numbers for employees show that hiring in these two sectors (fast-food jobs are part of “Leisure and Hospitality”) has been occurring at a faster rate than any other sector in Marin. We will have to see if the wage increases either slow hiring or help employers secure the talent they have been missing with the incentive of higher wages.
