As Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee Members Nury Martinez, Curren Price and Mitch O'Farrell ask for a report on the consequences of a $15.37 Minimum Wage for Hotel Workers, business, civic and city leaders should look to Detroit, Michigan, to note the effects of bankrupting, progressive policies on a large municipality.
Will run away governmental expenses and bankrupting, progressive policies lead to Los Angeles becoming the "Detroit on the Pacific" in the near future.
Good morning from the East Bank of the Los Angeles River as your Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee moves closer to approving a Minimum Wage Hike that will bring "Ciudad de Los Angeles" in line with Detroit, Michigan in becoming bankrupt Sister Cities.
But while the Clowncil Central Committee Trio awaits approval of an economic report on the proposed Minimum Wage Hike, progressive supporters of the supposed $15.37 per hour living wage, are making the rounds city-wide in the effort to grow support.
At this month's Los Angeles Neighborhood Council Coalition (LANCC) Meeting in Hollywood, the front group promoting this scheme, Left Wing, Progressive Madeline Janis's LAANE organization
, sent two reps to sell this scheme to the assembled NC activists and the blowback was immediate. The LANNE duo, while attacking the profit margins of the big hotels fail to mention LAANE's ties to Big Labor
(especially LAANE supporter SEIU), who would love to have a higher Minimum Wage, to use as a benchmark for future contract negotiations with the City of Los Angeles.
As a former SEIU 347 Shop Steward and Executive Union Board Member in the City of Commerce, I know first hand how a hike in the Minimum Wage (and its ensuing affect on the Cost per Living Index, CPI), can have at the negotiating table, come contract time.
In the City of Los Angeles currently, you have thousands of unionize, part-time employees making below the proposed Minimum Wage of $15.37 per hour. If the proposed Minimum Wage Hike is approve, the hourly rate becomes the new benchmark at the negotiation table, which would mean higher employee costs for a municipality that is projected to have another $200 Million Dollar deficit looming in the upcoming Fiscal Year ....... and rest assure, like the hotels, the city will past on the cost of this scheme to you.
That's if bankruptcy does not come first to the soon to be "Detroit on the Pacific".
