Economic Development Committee
The City Council passed a proposal Tuesday to increase Los Angeles’s minimum wage to $15 an hour over the next five years.
A Los Angeles City Council committee will hold a public hearing in Watts tonight to talk about a proposal to raise the minimum wage to as high as $15.25 per hour by 2019.
The move to raise the minimum wage in Los Angeles was considered Tuesday during the first of a series of hearings to consider the issue.
Members of the council’s Economic Development Committee are suggesting an increase from the state’s minimum wage of $8 to $15.37 be implemented for workers at hotels with at least 300 rooms by July 1, 2015.
