SACRAMENTOAssembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) issued the following statement after today’s court decision on the Governor’s order to reduce state employee pay to federal minimum wage:

“Let’s be clear: the Governor’s minimum wage order is nothing more than a political stunt that will not save the state a single penny. I find it shocking that the Governor is deliberately causing real suffering in an attempt to force the Legislature to pass his job-killing budget. The Governor shouldn't be playing political games to distract from the fact that his budget will devastate California’s recovery and wipe out 430,000 jobs.”
