I recently spoke with NBC4’s Conan Nolan on NewsConference to discuss the recent City Council vote on a wage increase for hotel workers, as well as the Mayor’s proposed city-wide minimum wage increase.
As I’ve mentioned before, I want everyone in my district to have access to a good paying job, affordable housing, quality health care, safe neighborhoods, recreational opportunities, and a well rounded education. We also need to be aware of the plight of the small business owner, a major employer in LA, as we craft a citywide minimum wage policy. I want to work towards a plan that will lift our low income workers, as well as create a thriving local economy. [AN EVEN BETTER BUSINESS FRIENDLY LOS ANGELES]
