Swimming against the stream of municipalities and states, raising the minimum wage, Irvine, under recent new leadership walks back the minimum wage for city contractors. Co-Chair of Irvine’s Living Wage Campaign and Planning Commissioner for the City of Irvine, Mary Ann Gaido, returns to these airwaves to address a reversal of this (mis)fortune. More information is available at: www.IrvineLivingWage.org or on their Facebook page.
During the second half of the show, Board Member of the Newport Beach Public Library Foundation, Natasha Palmaer has a roster of forums for 2015-2016 that just doesn’t quit. Speakers, more speakers, and book discussions, all honest endeavors in one of the state’s most opulent zipcodes. All events and workshops are posted on: https://www.nbplfoundation.org/. This interview was prematurely concluded with the disruption of phone service on a portion of the UC Irvine campus. Regrets to Ms. Palmaer.
