SoCal Update

L.A. County Approves $5 COVID Pay Bump | Feb. 24

On the Feb. 24 episode of SoCal Update, employees at large grocery and drugstore chains in the unincorporated areas of L.A. County are going to get a temporary $5-per-hour pay bump, under a measure approved today by the County Board of Supervisors. KPCC Reporter David Wagner reports the grocery industry has vowed to try to block the measure in court.

The measure, approved for 120 days in areas not governed by city councils, is similar to others approved in the City of Los Angeles and Long Beach. In response, Kroger announced it was closing two stores in Long Beach. The California Grocers Association is suing Long Beach and plans to do the same in L.A. County.
