Unions Push for Exemption from New Minimum Wage Law

Hosted by

LA labor unions are dialing back their position on the minimum wage. After campaigning for an increase for months, they're now pushing for a last-minute exemption for businesses with unionized workers. Why the switch? Could this new request derail wage reform in LA? Guest host Barbara Bogaev looks at the latest power tussle over $15 dollars an hour minimum wage.

Also, like everyone else, cemeteries are grappling with the drought -- some less peacefully than others.
