Los Angeles Workers To Receive $15 Minimum Wage

The Los Angeles City Council gave preliminary approval on Tuesday to raise the hourly minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2020 for companies with more than 25 employees, while giving smaller businesses an extra year to meet that benchmark.
The council voted 14-1 to approve the measure, which must come back for a final vote.
The proposed wage increase in the second-largest U.S. city would raise the pay of an estimated 800,000 workers, officials said.
City Councilman Curren Price Jr. said
"We are embarking upon, I think, the most progressive minimum wage policy anywhere in the country,"
