LA Votes to Raise Minimum Wage to $15/Hour

The Huffington Post reported that yesterday, the LA City Council voted 14-1 to raise the minimum wage from $9.00 to $15.00 per hour.  Los Angeles is the largest city in America to make this step.

The wage is proposed to be raised to $10/hour in January of 2016, then $1.00 per year to reach the $15 mark.

While this is not an instant increase, it does indicate progress in the right direction.  Many feel that other cities will follow.
