Faulconer Will Veto City Council's Wage Ordinance

Mayor Opposes Plan That Will Increase Costs, Put Up Roadblocks to Opportunities

San Diego - Today Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer released the following statement on an ordinance that would significantly increase costs for San Diego's small businesses.

"As Mayor, my job is to cultivate an atmosphere that creates economic opportunities and good-paying jobs for all San Diegans," Faulconer said. "This ordinance puts our job growth in jeopardy and will lead to higher prices and layoffs for San Diego families. I will veto this ordinance because we should be looking for ways to create more jobs, not putting up roadblocks to opportunities."
