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 - Councilmembers Mitch O’Farrell and Bob Blumenfield issued statements this week following the discussion in Economic Development Committee of their proposal for a comprehensive analysis of the proposed citywide minimum wage increase [COUNCIL FILE].

The Economic Development Committee approved an independent full analysis of raising the minimum wage to $13.25 and  to $15.25 by 2019, which will include the analysis of unintended consequences, the pros and cons of an increase, and an analysis of a cap on the increase.
