Los Angeles union wants to be exempt from $15 minimum wage it fought for
Union officials argue minimum wage ordinances that omit unionized workforces – which are common in the US – allow for negotiation of better contracts

Union officials in Los Angeles are fighting to be excluded from minimum wage rules that they have lobbied to put in place.

Los Angeles city council is set to vote on a union-backed clause to its $15-an-hour minimum wage bill that would exempt workers covered by a collective bargaining contract. The debate is expected to start later this week when the council returns from summer recess.

In May, the Los Angeles city council voted in favor of raising minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2020. As the council prepared for a final vote on the legislation, the Los Angeles Times reported local union leaders had suggested an exemptionthat was common for such laws: to make companies with unionized workforces exempt from such wage increase.

Smashed avocado on toast with heirloom tomato, garlic and black pepper. 🍞🍞🍞 So simple and tasty! I used Dave’s Killer Bread and had two slices, half an avocado and the entire tomato. 👍 This makes a nice lunch along with an almond milk latte. I had a massive blueberry, mango, banana, date smoothie for breakfast but couldn’t manage a decent photo. The lighting was all off. Now I’m roasting potatoes in preparation for dinner 😊 Can’t wait! Have you noticed food is all I think about?? 😜
