Minimum Wage Deal Would Hike Wage to $15/Hour

Governor Jerry Brown joined Democratic lawmakers and labor leaders to announce a landmark agreement to raise California’s minimum wage to $15 an hour. The deal would phase in the increase over six years, eventually linking the state’s minimum wage to the rate of inflation. It opens the way to remove a minimum wage initiative that is poised to go onto the November ballot. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
