|Industry||Total city employment||Share in the private sector||Share of private-sector employment in firms with 20+ employees||Share of workers who are hourly||Total covered workers|
Notes: San Francisco’s Family Friendly Workplace Ordinance went into effect on January 1, 2014.
San Francisco’s Family Friendly Workplace Ordinance went into effect on January 1, 2014. The law covers all employees in businesses with at least 20 employees. The total number of covered workers is calculated by first multiplying the total city employment by the private-sector share of total employment in the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, CA metropolitan statistical area (MSA), then multiplying by the share of private-sector employment in the MSA in firms with 20+ employees, and then multiplying that result by the national share of workers who are hourly. Since the law applies to establishments with 20 or more employees worldwide and we are using firms with 20 or more employees in the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, CA MSA, we are likely underestimating the number of workers impacted.
