Governor Signs Minimum Wage Act
With Governor Jerry Brown’s endorsement, the state’s minimum wage will go up to $15 by 2022, making it the nation’s highest. Republicans and business groups claim Brown has, in essence, signed away thousands of jobs in the state. Brown remarks, “This is about economic justice, it’s about people. This is an important day, it’s not the end of the struggle but it’s a very important step forward.”
Brown was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
