Dear Minimum Wage Working Group,
Last week, the Minimum Wage Working Group met to update BizFed’s Minimum Wage Platform. The group voted to keep the Platform as written except for the following updates:
- Remove untimely references throughout the platform now that the state has passed minimum wage.
- Advocate for local jurisdictions that have a different minimum wage policy than the state to align with California law.
- Further emphasize that minimum wage policies should include strong mitigating factors such as a total compensation model that accounts for tips, the establishment of a meaningful teen wage, prolonged implementation, and periodic economic reviews with strong off-ramp provisions if the minimum wage policies are not working.

Next Step: The BizFed Advocacy Committee will vote on the Minimum Wage Platform updates as recommended by this Working Group at the Advocacy Committee meeting on December 1 (2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.) at Holland & Knight LLP, 400 S Hope St 8th Floor , Los Angeles, CA 90071. You are welcomed to attend this meeting to engage in the discussion.
Please submit any feedback on the drafted Platform by Tuesday, November 29 at 3 p.m. to Brandon Matson at Brandon.Matson@BizFed.org.
