The state Senate has passed legislation raising California’s minimum wage. If passed by the Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown, it will boost the minimum wage to $11 per hour on Jan. 1 and $13 an hour on July 1, 2017. Beginning in 2019, it requires the minimum wage to be increased annually based on inflation. What is your opinion about raising the minimum wage?
