Living Proof? (1121 words)
Although Los Angeles has a different economic makeup than smaller cities with living wage ordinances, such as Santa Fe, authors of the study said many of the trends are universal, specifically reduced employee turnover and declines in absenteeism.
Los Angeles' living wage law requires firms to pay either $10.03 per hour or $8.78 with a $1.25 per hour contribution to health benefits and to provide 12 paid days and 10 unpaid days off per year.
In addition, Los Angeles lawmakers specifically wanted to address the increasing privatization of city services as a means to cut costs, a strategy that living wage advocates argue only shifts the costs, as low-wage subcontracted workers have to rely on government assistance to get by, the report says.
