Looks to me like it will mean more opportunity for undocumented foreign workers, who are perfectly willing to work for below minimum wage.
The legislation passed Thursday now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown, who is expected to sign it into law after previously working out the plan with labor unions.
The Assembly passed SB3 with a 48-26 vote. The Senate followed, 26-12.
The increases would start with a boost from $10 to $10.50 on Jan. 1. Businesses with 25 or fewer employees would have an extra year to comply.
This, of course, will result in more unemployment for unskilled above- ground "legally protected" American workers.
