UCB report finds California’s low-wage workers make less than in 1979

According to a new analysis from UC Berkeley’s Center for Labor Research and Education, low-wage workers in California made less in inflation-adjusted dollars in 2014 than they did in 1979.

The analysis is published in chart-form in Low-Wage Work in California: 2014 Chartbook, an excellent resource with a wide range of information regarding low-wage workers and their working conditions.
