150361 1 Formal Policy Discussions - April 21, 2015HearingFiledPursuant to Charter, Sections 2.103 and 3.100(7), and Administrative Code, Section 2.11, the Mayor shall answer the following eligible questions submitted from Supervisors representing Districts 1 and 3. The Mayor may address the Board initially for up to five minutes. Discussion shall not exceed five minutes per Supervisor. 1. Mr. Mayor, last year San Francisco passed groundbreaking legislation that will raise our minimum wage as well as provide predictable scheduling and job retention protections for part-time and on-call chain store workers. In order for these new rights to have any impact we need to ensure that our ability to enforce these laws is sufficient. This means that staffing levels at the Office of Labor Standards Enforcement have to be increased but it also means that we need to fund community based organizations that can supplement our ability to reach out to workers who may be reticent to claim their rights. Can we count on your office to fund for these critical needs through our upcoming budget process? (Supervisor Mar, District 1) 2. Mr. Mayor, Current pHEARD AND FILED  Action details Video Video
