What? “Staff up San Jose” Strike Results

Working Partnerships USA has recently released a report that shows the City can afford to increase wages for its employees. The special report states that the City of San Jose is accustomed to budget surpluses, which are primarily driven by savings on general fund expenses. Accurate accounting could result in an additional $13 to $28 million in budget savings for the adopted budget of 2023-2024. These savings can be reinvested to help San Jose recruit and retain dedicated staff.
