The City of Santa Monica invites local businesses to attend a presentation of “Proposed Minimum Wage Ordinance for Santa Monica” that will be held in the coming weeks.
Dr. Michael Reich, Professor of Economics and Director of the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment at the University of California at Berkeley, will lead the discussion and Q&A session.
The purpose of the meeting is to gather input and feedback from the local business community about a potential Santa Monica minimum wage ordinance, modeled after that of the City of Los Angeles.
Dr. Reich provided analysis for the Los Angeles ordinance, and will facilitate the discussion and answer questions. Everyone in the local business community and local residents are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The sessions will be held Wednesday, Aug. 12 from 9 am to 11 am and Tuesday, Aug. 18 from 2 pm to 4 pm,
Both will be held at Santa Monica Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd., Multi-Purpose Room (2nd floor).
