Minimum Wage In L.A. Raised

Minimum wage workers in Los Angeles saw their pay increase to $16.04 an hour on Friday, while a statewide initiative that would have increased pay to $18 an hour by 2025 failed to garner enough signatures to make the November ballot. Workers in unincorporated L.A. County also saw their minimum hourly wage rise, to $15.96, after an increase last year to about $15 an hour.
