Gov. Brown To Sign Bill That Would Increase California’s Minimum Wage

UPDATE: Gov. Brown has signed the bill that will increase California's minimum wage, the Associated Press reports.

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Gov. Jerry Brown Wednesday will sign legislation that provides for the minimum wage in California to rise from the current $8 per hour to $10 by 2016.

Two signing ceremonies are on the schedule. In the first, the governor will be joined by business owners and legislators as he signs Assembly Bill 10 in the auditorium of the Ronald Reagan State Building on Spring Street in downtown L.A. The second ceremony will take place at noon at the Cypress Mandela Training Center in Oakland.

The new law will have a high impact on California, which is reported to have the nation's largest number of the so-called working poor.

2010?

The best idea I've heard was pegging the federal minimum wage to congressional pay. If one goes up, so must the other.

"... from the current $8 per hour to $10 by 2010."

Wow! That's a lot of back pay!

Already seeing effects. Taco Bell raised the price of their entire menu by 20% last week. Bend over, here it comes again.

You know what's cheap? Buying produce at the grocery store, and preparing your own meals.

I'm helping fund SNAP if you really need a free meal.
