Will Raising Minimum Wage in L.A. Be Enough?

Thursday, April 30
10 - 11:30 a.m.


Los Angeles' proposed minimum wage increase continues to be a fiery topic for debate in our region, with Mayor Garcetti proposing a raise from $9 to $13.25/hr, while others on the City Council push to more than $15/hr. Captivating the attention of every business and employment stakeholder, multiple studies have been done on the differing effects of this important decision, including one by the independent research and consulting firm Beacon Economics.

Lifting families out of poverty ultimately helps everyone, but is the discussion at City Hall targeted enough to be effective? Join us as Chris Thornberg, Founding Partner of Beacon Economics, gives us a detailed look on the effects these different minimum wage increase proposals will have on businesses and the economy of Los Angeles.
