We at the Chamber are looking for feedback from local businesses regarding some important possible legislation. The City of Los Angeles is exploring an increase in the city’s minimum wage from the current $9 per hour to between $13.25 and $15.25 per hour, to be phased in over multiple years. The L.A. County Board of Supervisors is also considering a raise in the minimum wage.
The Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce would like the input of local businesses regarding the possible increase of the minimum wage and how it could affect you. Please give us your opinion on any impact this could have on your business or potential effects on the community. Please send your answers to the following questions and any additional comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Are you happy with the current minimum wage?
• Do you already pay a higher minimum wage?
• Would the raise in pay impact your business? If so, how?
• In your opinion, would a raise in pay make your business relocate to a city with a lower minimum wage?
We thank the following businesses for renewing their membership with the Chamber during the month of March: Millie Alvarez, Dilbeck Realtors; Andy’s Transfer & Storage; Dr. William Ashby, DDS; Craig’s Electric; Crescenta-Cañada Pet Hospital; Giuseppe’s Pizzeria; Mark’s Handyman Service; Orchard Supply Hardware; Professional Development Center of GCC; St. Luke’s of the Mountains; Trotta Floor Coverings; and USC Verdugo Hills Hospital.
These businesses are a vital part of a network of organizations that supports events and opportunities that make living in the Crescenta Valley so appealing. Please support our Chamber members.
