Oakland’s Measure FF, a voter-enacted ballot measure passed in November 2014, provides annual increases to Oakland’s Minimum Wage based on the local Consumer Price Index (CPI). Effective January 1, 2016, the rate rises 30¢, from $12.25 to $12.55. The law requires that employers inform employees of the increase by December 15, 2015.
