You can count on Sacramento to step in to screw things up if the local yokels can't do it. "An initiative that would boost California’s minimum wage — which is set to jump to $15.50 an hour starting Jan. 1 — to $18 per hour is eligible for the November 2024 ballot, Secretary of State Shirley Weber said Thursday. The measure, which failed to qualify for the November 2022 ballot, is set to go before voters in two years." Hey Mom and Pop! Tough nuggies.


This piece in yesterday's DJ caught my eye. If you missed the lefty bias in the piece, I will point it out to you:

Minimum wage hike in Half Moon Bay may stop public benefits

Officials weighing whether it’s worth it for workers

A proposed $20 minimum wage in Half Moon Bay could be implemented in a variety of ways, city staff presented amidst concerns that the increase could potentially remove low-income residents from receiving public benefits.
City staff have "concerns". They are not "hopeful" that a big bump in the minimum wage will reduce dependency on welfare payouts....they're "concerned". Are they "concerned" about HMB employers?
