San Francisco Living Wage Ordinance
- San Francisco, California
- San Francisco Department of Public Health
In response to a request from a city legislator, the San Francisco Department of Public Health conducted an HIA of a proposed city ordinance that would require city contractors and property leaseholders to pay their employees a "living wage" of $11.00 per hour. The HIA quantitatively estimated the potential health effects of the ordinance, predicting potential decreases in days of illness and premature death, and improvements in depressive symptoms.
