Gavin Newsome’s Minimum Wage Hike Isn’t Actually Hurting Job Numbers

Since Governor Gavin Newsom raised California’s minimum wage to $20, people have not only lost jobs, but countless restaurants have had to raise their menu prices causing frustration among chains and customers. The fast-food industry has suffered the most.

Tom Manzo, President of the California Business and Industrial Alliance (CABIA) a business lobbyist, explained on “Fox and Friends” that organizations are frustrated with California’s policies. He highlighted that the increased costs and an anti-business climate are major issues for the state.

The counterpoint is the higher cost of living in California and the need for a living wage for workers across the state.

But more importantly Manzo’s data is incorrect. The big raw numbers look bad due to seasonality, there are times of year where the fast food business sees dips, and this year was no different. In fact, it was different.

It was better.

The Los Angeles Times breaks down the actual numbers looking at a larger sample size and concludes that the shifts are not related to the raise in minimum wage at all.
