The new minimum wage law would become effective on January 1, 2015. The new law would not apply to City contracts in effect prior to January 1, 2015. The requirements of this Ordinance do not apply to the purchases of goods by the City for which competitive bidding is not required. This law is similar to an Executive Order issued by President Obama on February 12, 2014 which requires parties entering into contracts with the Federal government to pay a minimum wage of $10.10 per hour.
