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.
