Yesterday also saw the defeat of Senator Mark Leno’s attempt to raise the state’s minimum wage again, just one year after wage boost agreed to in 2013.  SB 935 sought to push the baseline to $13 an hour and create automatic “cost of living” increases.  With the increase agreed to last year set to go into effect in just two weeks, business groups argued that another mandated increase would further dampen the recovery.  The bill stalled out on a bi-partisan vote in the Assembly Labor and Employment committee.
