Mark Leno will try again to hike California’s minimum wage

California lawmakers will consider a minimum wage increase in 2015 after Sen. Mark Leno introduced a bill to move it to $11 in 2016 and $13 in 2017. The bill also includes an escalator clause to tie future increases to inflation, a provision opposed by business groups.
