Miami-Dade County's Living Wage

On May 11, 1999, the Board of County Commissioners established a Living Wage requirement for employees on County service contracts to allow citizens to support themselves and their families above the poverty line and with dignity. The Living Wage applies to contracts valued greater than $100,000 and all service contractors at Miami-Dade Aviation Department facilities regardless of contract value for various covered services as defined in the provisions of Miami-Dade County’s Living Wage Ordinances Section 2-8-9 of the Code of Miami-Dade County.


Small Business Development, a Division of the Internal Services Department, is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of the Living Wage on County contracts. Enforcement at the Aviation facilities is performed by the Minority Affairs Division of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department. For assistance or to file a complaint of underpayment please contact Small Business Development at 305-375-3111 or Minority Affairs at 305-876-7784. Employees of Service Contractors who believe that they are victims of underpayment can file a complaint with Small Business Development or Minority Affairs, or bring an action by filing suit against the Service Contractor in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce the provisions of the Living Wage.
