Dear Principal Investigators and Research Administrators:
Please note that the City Council of Los Angeles has voted to incrementally raise the minimum wage eventually to $15 per hour by the Year 2020.
The first step-increase will be effective as of July 1, 2016 and will set the minimum wage at $10.50 per hour.
If you have any employees that currently earn less than $10.50 per hour please budget accordingly and contact the TUC Human Resources Dept. for making the necessary adjustment.
For some background information on this issue, you may also refer to the related article in the LA Times at http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-minimum-wage-vote-20150602-story.html .Regards,
