The University of California system will raise its minimum wage for direct and contract employees to $15 an hour over the next three years, it announced on Wednesday. The plan, unveiled at a meeting of the Board of Regents, will place the system’s minimum wage well above the state’s minimum wage, which is $9 an hour.
“Through its education, research, and public-service missions, the University of California’s students, faculty, and staff have made us into a world-renowned institution,” said the system’s president, Janet A. Napolitano, in a news release. “And our community does not exist in a vacuum. How we support our workers and their families impacts Californians who might never set foot on one of our campuses.”
