San Francisco's retail workers on their way to a $15 minimum wage. Yesterday, the city's voters approved Proposition J, which will increase the minimum wage incrementally over the next four years. The current minimum wage in the city is $10.74; that rate will go up to $11.05 on January 1, and $12.25 in May. For more details on the hike, check out our minimum wage primer from earlier this week.
