LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Democratic Party (LACDP) adopted a resolution at its November General Membership Meeting in support of an increase in the minimum wage in Long Beach to $15 per hour.

Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman said of the resolution,  “The Los Angeles County Democratic Party strongly supports a living wage for all working men and women in Long Beach.  This resolution is about ensuring hard-working families have the opportunity for a better life, something impossible at today’s minimum wage.  When low-income workers receive higher wages, the increased dollars are directly invested back into the communities they live in.”

Previously, LACDP adopted resolutions and partnered with the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor to support and promote the adoption of $15 per hour minimum wage in the City and County of Los Angeles.
