In the New Year, San Francisco workers will get a few more cents in their pockets.

A new minimum wage will go into effect Jan. 1.

The wage will climb 43 cents to $9.79 an hour.

The change was approved by voters in 2003 and ties the annual wage increase to the percentage change in the consumer price index.

San Francisco will have the country's second highest minimum wage in 2009.

The city trails only Santa Fe, New Mexico, which will page $9.92 an hour.
