Labor Secretary, Thomas Perez, stopped in Los Angeles in order to kick off his pre-Labor-Day national tour to champion higher minimum wages. Last year, around this time, when the Federal Labor Secretary stopped in Los Angeles to urge higher minimum wage, I started to report on minimum wage. One year later I have written number of articles on minimum wage. Some of them on this topic include:
http://www.bayareaemploymentattorney.net/richmond-minimum-wage/ for the Northern California area
http://worklawyerca.com/category/blog/ for the Federal and State level
http://www.sandiegoemployeelawyer.com/minimum-wage/ for San Diego Minimum Wage controversy
I have written more articles on all of the hoopla surrounding minimum wage hikes. These three I easily remember. What has come of all of this Democratic interest in minimum wage, constantly met with Republican and alleged small business opposition?
- An executive order hiking Federal Minimum Wage for employees who are contractors with the United States Government
- A California statewide increase to $9.00 an hour as of July 1, 2014 with more increases coming
