Labor and Dissent at City Hall

Hosted by

The Los Angeles City Council recently approved a plan to increase the minimum wage for workers at large hotels in the city, despite some concerns about the impact it might have on the economy. One city-hired economist found that a similar wage hike at LAX-area hotels led to a 10% decline in jobs. Yet there was hardly any debate at City Hall about the wage hike. Kevin Roderick, editor of LA Observed, spoke with KCRW's Eric Roy.
