Governor Budget/ Minimum Wage

Yesterday Governor Brown delivered his proposed budget with $25.4 billion of cuts and taxes through June 2012.

The taxes he is looking to put on the June ballot are:

1. A .25 percent surcharge in the state income tax. Revenue generated $3.2 billion

2. A 1 % increase in the state sales tax. Revenue generated 4.5 billion over 12 months

3. A increase in the vehicle license fee from .65% of a cars value to 1,15%. Revenue generated $1.3 billion.

In order for these taxes to take effect it will have to go to the voters in June.

What is your position on these taxes?

AB10 has been introduced by Assemblyman Alejo. It will provide for an annual adjustment of the minimum wage.

What is your position on this. The current minimum wage is $8.

Would you support this?
