Tell Mountain View City Council to raise the city’s Minimum Wage to $15 per hour, as Seattle’s City Council voted unanimously back in June 2014.
We need a livable wage for one of those most expensive places to live! When Mountain View adopts a Livable Wage, other South Bay cities will follow!
Mountain View is more expensive to live in than San Jose and the proposed $10.15 per hour is still poverty wages.
$10.15 * 40 hours * 4 weeks = $1,624/month.
Do Mountain View’s City Council Members really believe that $1,624 in pre-tax income is enough to pay all of one’s living expenses in Mountain View?
