SACRAMENTO, CA — Senator John Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa) issued the following statement regarding the announcement of the new minimum wage legislation today:
“California has the nation’s highest poverty rate. One reason is because California has been rated the worst place to grow a business for 11 years straight.
“Instead of adding more road blocks for businesses, we must, first, develop an overall plan for economic competitiveness that will rebuild our economy. But, absent that blueprint, we have no way of knowing if this minimum wage hike will help or hurt workers and the job growth which California families need.”
