News Conference with Conan Nolan


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]


CITY HALL - Los Angeles City Councilmembers Mitch O’Farrell and Bob Blumenfield introduced a motion today that directs staff to procure an economic analysis on the unintended consequences of increasing the minimum wage, especially as it relates to small business and nonprofit sectors.

The motion directs the City Administrative Officer and the Chief Legislative Analyst to evaluate the pros and cons of categorical exemptions, alternative methods for measuring and implementing automatic wage increases, and establishing a base and ceiling for the increase.
