Governor Names New Members To Commission Considering Minimum Wage

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger today filled a dormant state commission with four Democratic appointees little more than an hour before asking them to approve a dollar an hour minimum wage increase without the annual cost-of-living adjustments sought by Democrats.

Two of the Republican governor´s four appointees had already served on the Industrial Welfare Commission until their terms expired last year.

Two more were new appointments by Schwarzenegger, one of them representing the state manufacturer´s association. A fifth commissioner´s term doesn´t run out until January.

Schwarzenegger vetoed two previous minimum wage increases. He´s asking the commission to increase the minimum wage $7.75 an hour.

But he doesn´t want the annual automatic cost of living increases included in bills that passed the Democrat-controlled Legislature this week.
