SAN DIEGO, CA – On the eve of the New Year, California State Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D – San Diego) issued the following statement regarding the Jan. 1 official and legally-obligated increase to the State of California’s and the City of San Diego’s minimum wage.
“Today, more than a million hard working San Diegans and Californians began receiving a pay raise that increases their ability to make ends meet for themselves and their families,” said Assemblymember Gloria. “With this investment in our workforce, we have taken a meaningful step toward the principle that those who work full-time should not live in poverty. While there is still much more work to do, I am proud of our progress. I will continue to work in the State Assembly to improve the quality of life for working families and ensure our state continues to provide opportunities for all workers to prosper.”
