Costs are rising and San Francisco has always been expensive. Prop A allows city employees who retired before November 6, 1996, to receive a supplemental cost of living adjustment.
The retirees impacted by this situation are generally older, including many above the age of 75. An overwhelming majority make less than $50,000 per year. Restoring the cost of living benefit would ensure equity for low-wage workers that served San Francisco. We are urging a YES on vote Prop A to restore a benefit that senior retired city workers earned throughout their years of service.
