Purchasing & Contracting
The Equal Opportunity Contracting Program (EOC) is committed to enforcement of the Living Wage Ordinance to ensure wages earned are put into workers’ pockets. EOC staff assist contractors in understanding their obligations under the ordinance, proactively monitor contracts, conduct compliance reviews, investigate complaints, and conduct outreach with workers and the contracting community.
San Diego Municipal Code Division 42 states the Living Wage Ordinance "advances the interests of the City as a whole by creating jobs that keep workers and their families out of poverty.... Paying service employees a living wage is intended to improve the quality of services provided to the City and to the public by reducing high turnover, absenteeism, and instability in the workplace."
