Raise The Wage is a coalition spearheading the movement to increase the prosperity and health of working families in Los Angeles County. We have established a pathway to raise the minimum wage to $15/hour in Los Angeles County, The City of Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Long Beach, and Pasadena, lifting up nearly one million workers in the process.

Now we are working to establish robust local enforcement agencies to ensure that the new wage is adequately enforced by securing funding for enforcement against wage theft, and educating workers about their rights.
