muscadine-1004185_1280MERCED,CA- California Governor Jerry Brown simply does not care about what will happen to citizens in non-urban parts of the state under a $15 dollar minimum wage. Still Brown goes and signs the bill into law which will raise the state’s minimum wage to $15.00 an hour by the year 2022. More than 4 million people living in California that work for minimum wage where glad to hear about the new bill that was signed by the Governor. Agriculture leaders are worried that the wage increase could have a severe impact on the farming industry and jeopardize the future of valley farms that run on small margins. Many farmers are worried that they may have to move some of their production out of California and into other countries because of the labor costs. Governor Jerry Brown will be able to pause the wage increases in the event of a recession, also Governor of New York signed a bill to ultimately raise the minimum wage there to $15.00 an hour.
