SACRAMENTOAssembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) issued the following statement today regarding the Governor ordering that state employees be paid the federal minimum wage:

“I’m deeply disappointed in the Governor’s actions today. This is not a realistic proposal to save the state cash any more than his budget plan, which kills 430,000 jobs, is a realistic proposal to close our deficit. Using working families as leverage is not the kind of leadership we need to get through this budget process.”
