Statement from President Bob Schoonover on our nation's first statewide $15 min wage law:

Today, working families across California are celebrating the signing of Senate Bill 3, which establishes a pathway to a $15 minimum wage by 2022. This historic legislation will lift California's working families out of poverty, and transform the lives of the 6.5 million Californians who earn less than $15 an hour.
