SAN DIEGO -- The minimum wage in San Diego is scheduled to increase by $1 an hour on Sunday, the first day of 2017.

The pay hike from $10.50 to $11.50 is the result of the City Council's passage of an ordinance that scheduled a series of increases and mandated up to five days of sick leave each year. The law was ratified by voters in June.

The ordinance applies to all industries and businesses, so there are no exceptions, according to the city. Tips and gratuities do not count toward payment of minimum wage.
