California to get a raise: $10 Minimum Wage


California is the most populated state in America, & now in a new bill passed by Gov. Jerry Brown, which will over the next few years till 2016, will raise the state's minimum wage from the current $8 to $10/hr. It would be one of the highest San Francisco, Ca currently has a slightly higher wage($10.55/hr), but the highest as a state in the nation is currently Washington with $9.19/Hr, but in 2016 thats all gonna change.

The Vote passed with flying colors, the AB10 went to a party-line vote 26 to 11.

In a time where people working minimum wage jobs everywhere have to get a second job, & still just make it. This bill is only fair, & other states should follow
suit.
