Tomorrow, the minimum wage in San Francisco will rise 32 cents an hour to $10.24.  The rate will be the highest in the country (and the first ever to cross $10.00). I have a piece up at Alternet that analyzes the likely impact. The shorter version: wages will rise, employment won’t be affected in any meaningful way.
