Richmond Lawmakers Take Step to Enact Local Minimum Wage

Lawmakers in the City of Richmond want to give voters the chance to enact the highest minimum wage in Northern California. The Richmond City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to have its staff develop proposals to raise the local wage as high as $15 per hour. If the council approves one such proposal, the city's voters would have the final say this November whether the new wage becomes law. Geoffrey Upton reports.
