They also contend that it would keep L.A.'s ordinance consistent with previous city wage laws. "I'd refer everyone back to the statements of labor leaders over the past seven months that no one deserves a sub-minimum wage," said Ruben Gonzalez, senior vice president for public policy and political affairs with the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, which opposed the minimum wage increase passed by the City Council. That law says that provisions of the hotel wage hike may be waived in workplaces that have collective bargaining agreements.
Roozbeh Farahanipour, president of the West Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, said Westside businesses aren't likely to support Santana's recommendations. One key recommendation in Santana's report is identifying for the first time the scope of the problem. Currently, city officials don't know how many miles of sidewalks exist in the city and have no comprehensive inventory of their condition. "Without this information, it will be difficult to measure progress as the city implements its new sidewalk management strategy," the report states.
Guizo, one of the most vulnerable. Almost a third of Mandaue City is flat, which makes it vulnerable to rainwater runoff from uplands in Cebu and Mandaue cities. Guizo , one of the lowest points of Mandaue, is a catchment basin that's particularly vulnerable. Several families had to be evacuated from waist-deep water in the barangay during a flood last September.

A special election Tuesday for state Senate is being pitched as a decision about who represents real Democratic values: the state lawmaker and former teacher endorsed by the California Democratic Party, or the Orinda mayor and longtime adviser to Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown. The answer has ripples beyond the east San Francisco Bay Area Senate district Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla and political consultant Steve Glazer are vying to represent.
A rebuke of the president by his own party. A new trade pact with Japan and other Pacific nations could have a big effect on Southern California. That's the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement between 12 countries, including Japan. Certainly the president's view, and my view, is yes, it is. Isn't there a fear that added imports would cause more harm to American industry and jobs, even if American exports to Japan and the other Pacific nations also go up? I don't think they're right and certainly the president doesn't think they're right.

But where exactly is this powerhouse of northern England to be based, asks Chris Stokel-Walker. Nearly a year ago Chancellor George Osborne stood up in Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry and announced the country's need for a "Northern Powerhouse". This would be an attempt to corral the North's population of 15 million into a collective force that could begin to rival that of London and the South East. And Stockton South MP James Wharton is the minister for the Northern Powerhouse. "I want to stand on my own two feet," says Forth.
Packing something and taking it to the post office. "It's not an easy thing to solve," he said. Shyp charges users a $5 pickup fee and the cost of the lowest carrier rate. According to Gibbons, Los Angeles is a city ripe for on-demand courier services because while most people may have a car, few people like sitting in traffic, and even fewer enjoy going to the post office. "With how spread out the city is, it also means a post office or FedEx is likely to be a lot further away than in San Francisco or New York," Gibbons said.
"We've been observing it for a while," said Elise Swanson, CEO of the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce. The South Bay was among those communities that saw the biggest increase in numbers reported from January's Los Angeles County homeless street count. Formed a task force about a year ago to address the increase in calls for service from police and fire and calls of concern from residents regarding the homeless. Hayslet said the biggest challenge in combating homelessness is finding available and affordable housing.
Countywide, 44,359 homeless people were tallied in January, up from 39,461 in a 2013 survey, according to a biennial report by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. Were in the city of Los Angeles. Mayor Eric Garcetti and federal officials have pledged to house every homeless veteran by the end of the year. The number of tents, makeshift encampments and vehicles with people living in them soared 85%. It shows we've got a ... - ˜I will house everybody by next year.' That's absurd. There's no housing to put people in," Callaghan said.
