THE $42/h ONE HOUR RESEARCH

MESSAGE TO ALL SOCIALIST AND ABOLITIONIST COMRADES

The real minimum wage or FAIR MARKET MINIMUM WAGE for Los Angeles is $42/h and it takes less than 1 hour to learn this, just visit these websites:

1.) Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Living Wage Calculator:

city of Los Angeles, 1 adult + 1 child $44.20/h two adults + 2 children

$45.79 https://livingwage.mit.edu/

2.) NATIONAL LOW INCOME HOUSING COALITION 2023 report: City of Los Angeles 2-bedroom apartment $42.73/h Minimum wage. https://nlihc.org/sites/default/files/oor/California_2023_OOR.pdf

3.) The Insight Center Family Needs Calculator: La County, 1 adult + 1 child school age= $48.48/h-

2 adults 2 child school age $42.62 per adult. https://insightcced.org/family-needs-calculator/

?????????????????????????????????????????????? ! ! ! !

It is sad that politicians do not want to talk about the $42/h minimum wage.

But it is heartbreaking that we socialists and abolitionists neither speak about the $42.

I urge you to do this “ONE HOUR RESEARCH” now.
