"Today, help is on the way for the one million Angelenos who live in poverty. I started this campaign to raise the minimum wage to create broader economic prosperity in our city and because the minimum wage should not be a poverty wage in Los Angeles. I want to thank the City Council, especially Council President Wesson and Councilmembers Bonin, Cedillo, Koretz, Krekorian, Martinez, O'Farrell and Price, for joining me in building a stronger city and I look forward to signing this legislation." - Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti
