QUIRK-SILVA PRAISES MOVE TO RAISE CA MINIMUM WAGE; BLASTS KIM’S VOTE AGAINST GIVING HARD-WORKING CA’S A RAISE
FULLERTON, CA—Classroom teacher and 65th Assembly District candidate Sharon Quirk-Silva today announced her support of an agreement to raise California’s minimum wage to $15 per hour, which will be phased in through 2022. After that the minimum wage will be indexed to inflation, giving wage earners an automatic cost of living adjustment. “Raising the minimum wage is a victory for hard working Californians who for too long have felt the pinch of stagnant wages and an ever-increasing cost of living,” said Quirk-Silva.
Mi Familia Vota Cheers the CA State Legislature’s Decision on Cesar Chavez Day to Raise State Minimum Wage to $15 Per Hour by 2022
Los Angeles, CA — The California bill to raise the state’s minimum wage and help low-income workers is now on its way to Gov. Jerry Brown, following approval by the state Legislature. The following is a statement by Mi Familia Vota Executive Director Ben Monterroso:
“This is a historic victory for the working men and women of California, and it could not have come on a better day than on the day that we celebrate the legacy of César Chávez, who founded the United Farmworkers and spent his life improving working conditions and wages for Latinos. “This victory is due to the political power that we have been building in the state by electing leaders who pay attention to the issues that matter to us.

Senator Moorlach Comments on Passage of Minimum Wage Bill

–Senator John Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa)
(SACRAMENTO, CA) — Today Senator Moorlach released the following statement regarding passage of SB 3 (Leno) raising the minimum wage:
“We are at an inflection point in our history, and the reverberations of this decision, particularly the law of unintended consequences, will be significant.“Statistics consistently show that raising the minimum wage will eliminate entry-level jobs. Many workers hoping this change will improve their finances will be sorely disappointed because their job may actually no longer exist. “California already has a net out-migration. For the first time since World War II, we have a declining K-12 school enrollment. That means our economy is shrinking. Los Angeles has not produced a net-new job in over a decade. This bill will further drive jobs and people from California.
