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.
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.
Thank you for all you do.
