LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Gov. Jerry Brown Wednesday signed a bill to increase the state’s minimum wage to $10 an hour by 2016.
The first signing ceremonies was held at 9 a.m. in the auditorium of the Ronald Reagan State Building on Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles. The second was held at 12 p.m. in Oakland.
“Our society over the last 30 years, since the last time I was governor, has experienced a growing gap between those who do the work at the bottom and those who occupy the commanding heights of the economy,” Brown said.
