Joe Biden joins Eric Garcetti in minimum wage push



Vice President Joe Biden came to town Tuesday, meeting up with Mayor Eric Garcetti and business leaders at the L.A. Baking Company in Lincoln Heights to talk dollars and cents. As the scent of scones and croissants wafted through the crowd, Biden emphasized that in order to stimulate the economy, consumers and businesses must invest not only in infrastructure, but also in better paying jobs. The Los Angeles City Council recently voted 12 to 3 in favor of increasing the minimum wage to $13.25.
