America's Largest County Considers Raising the Minimum Wage

Hosted by

At LA County's Hall of Administration today, public comment was limited to just one minute after hundreds signed up to testify about a proposed increase in the minimum wage. The Board was considering a measure much like one signed into law last month by LA Mayor Eric Garcetti. The increase would be phased in over the next five years from $9 an hour to $15.
