Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti, has a plan to raise the minimum wage to $13.25 by 2017. Councilmember of District 3 (Canoga Park, Reseda, Tarzana, Winnetka, Woodland Hills), Bob Blumenfield says, “Raising Angelenos out of poverty is among the most critical challenges our City faces, and I applaud the Mayor's efforts to attack this issue head on. I look forward to joining my Council colleagues to look closely at the proposal to ensure it will work as intended.”

In this video, an owner and a worker give their take on the new plan.
