A “Most Significant Victory”

That is how the New York Times described yesterday’s LA City Council vote to raise the minimum wage in Los Angeles.

I kicked off this effort last year on Labor Day so that no Angeleno working full-time lives in poverty. Yesterday, the City Council voted to accomplish just that.

Will you join me in sharing the news with your friends?

Today, help is on the way for nearly one million hard-working Angelenos struggling to make ends meet. This initiative is the largest anti-poverty program in our city’s history.

As the New York Times said, that is significant. Help share this news.

Thank you for all you do.
