Schwarzenegger Loses On Minimum Wage Order

July 19, 2010

Judge Patrick Marlette ruled against Calif. Governor Schwarzenegger in his attempts to force State Controller John Chiang to pay state employees federal minimum wage. 200,000 employees would have earned seven dollars and twenty-five cents an hour the federal minimum wage which is less than the state minimum wage. So the average DMV employee would actually make less than the teenager at McDonald’s. This all in an attempt to get state unions to negotiate concessions and legislators to agree on budget terms. This ploy would actually save no money in the state budget. The next hearing on this will be July 26 with another hearing in August. Meanwhile state employees and vendors wait.
