6:33 am
end up making about $4,800 a year more. on the flipside, the study would say 1% in an increase in consumer prices and reduction in prices and percent. now for the deal could be up for a vote in the legislature in as early as two weeks. according to "l.a. times" two 50 cent increases and $1 each year until $15 an hour in 2022. smaller businesses go another year. meaning fewer 25 employees that deadline would be 2023. but political analysts say this is a compromise move that governor brown has to do this because unions have already got one initiative and one in the works for the november ballot that would leave it up to california voters and make it as early as $15 an hour by 2020. so, again, we'll have to see. live in our san francisco newsroom, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." international news now and a
