Write and call members of the Senate Labor, Public Employment and Retirement Committee, urging them to oppose Senate Bill (SB) 525 (Durazo-D, Los Angeles), which would increase the minimum wage to $25 for all workers, including contractors, in all health care settings starting on Jan. 1, 2024. The minimum wage would also increase annually by 3.5% or the Consumer Price Index, whichever is greater. CHA has developed materials, including a template letter and key messages, about the bill for your use.
Please send your letters to Emily Schroeder at email@example.com by April 5. If your senator is a member of the committee, also call them by April 11. The bill is scheduled to be heard on April 12.
