Sacramento minimum-wage ordinance details come out

Despite efforts from labor activists pushing for a $15 wage, the Sacramento minimum-wage ordinance appears very similar to the proposal announced by Mayor Kevin Johnson's task force in late August.

ABC10 News obtained a draft of the ordinance, which is scheduled for a vote in City Council on Oct. 13.

Businesses with fewer than 40 employees will phase in wage increases more slowly than larger employees, according to the draft. Businesses with 40 or more workers will pay $10.50 per hour starting on Jan. 1, 2018; $11 per hour as of Jan. 1, 2018; $11.75 as of Jan. 1, 2019; and $12.50 as of Jan. 1, 2020. Beginning in 2021, the city minimum wage will be adjusted in proportion to the Consumer Price Index.

Sacramento's community policing gets federal grant for youth programs

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department was awarded a two year Community Oriented Policing Services grant aimed at keeping kids out of trouble. The $747,000 will go toward the Sheriff's Youth Service Unit. 

The funds will cover two deputy positions, adding to the unit that currently is composed of six deputies and one sergeant.

The main goal here is gang prevention. The unit works closely with businesses throughout the community, faith based groups, and area law enforcement to show kids who are teetering on that edge, that there are better options out there.

"It starts with the kids," said Sgt. Cary Trzcinski. "One thing we've realized within the sheriff's department, you cannot arrest your way out of a problem."
