Jerry Brown: California minimum wage plan ‘careful and responsible’

Gov. Jerry Brown, Democratic leaders and labor leaders Monday touted an agreement that would raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022, saying the pact should avert an expensive ballot fight this fall.

The state’s $10-an-hour minimum wage, already the highest in the country, would rise to $10.50 next Jan. 1 for businesses with 26 or more workers, with subsequent increases to $15 an hour by 2022 and then linked to inflation. California would be the first state to commit to a $15 an hour wage.
