The bill by Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, comes about a month before the state's minimum wage is set to increase from $8 an hour to $9 in July as part of legislation signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last year that also included another $1 per hour by 2016.So, they want people 100% on public assistance. How does that help????
Leno's SB 935 would override and increase the ladder raise as minimum wage would move to $11 in 2015, $12 in 2016 and $13 by 2017. Starting in 2018, the bill calls for additional adjustments annually for inflation. The bill is sponsored by the Women's Foundation of California and SEIU California State Council and is now headed to the stat Assembly for consideration.
"No one should be working full-time and living in poverty," Leno said. "Even with our increase last year, Californians will still be paid poverty wages and qualify for public assistance."
I already posted an article about how fast food restaurants will just start closing restaurants if the minimum wage is increased. So, the manager and assistant manager who make more than the line workers will lose their jobs. Thanks CA! What stupidity.
