The nation’s second-largest city, Los Angeles, voted Tuesday to increase its minimum wage from $9 an hour to $15 an hour by 2020.
The increase comes as several large companies, including Facebook and Walmart, have moved to raise their lowest wages. Several other cities, including San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, and Oakland, California, have already approved increases and dozens more are considering doing the same. In 2014, a number of Republican-leaning states like Alaska and South Dakota also raised their state-level minimum wages by ballot initiative.
