Kerry Jackson Quoted in Associated Press on Newsom’s New Minimum Wage Increase in January


Pacific Research Institute’s, Kerry Jackson, was quoted in the Associated Press on Governor Newsom’s $15.50 per hour minimum wage increase set to take place January of 2023:

The increase will impact smaller companies the most, which will see the minimum wage jump $1.50 in January. Kerry Jackson, a fellow at the conservative-leaning Pacific Research Institute’s Center for California Reform, said the increase could cause some employees at smaller companies to work fewer hours.

“It may be very painful for them,” he said.
