The city released its 2013 living wage rate on Friday.
This is the minimum amount contractors working on city jobs must pay the employees who do those jobs. It only applies to particular services - those like laundry, pest control, security, moving services, etc. - and then only to employees who spend at least 50 percent of their time working that city job.
On Monday, San Jose's minimum wage officially increased from $8 an hour to $10.
But at downtown's Philz Coffee, the wage change approved by local voters in November already went into effect last month.
