The issue of whether to raise the minimum wage is being hotly debated in communities across California. Just last week, voters in both Oakland and San Francisco approved an increase, and the Los Angeles City Council has begun hearings on proposed increases as well. When it comes to the minimum wage, we often hear arguments from businesses, from labor and from government. But what about nonprofits? We are both employers and organizations embedded in our communities and trusted by the public, which gives us a point of view that is distinct.

As your “Chamber of Commerce” representing the nonprofit sector, our job is to ensure that policy makers and the public at large know the perspective of nonprofits on issues that impact us and the communities we serve. That’s why we are surveying nonprofit leaders about how minimum wage increases impact nonprofits.

Your response to this survey is essential, because it will allow us to tell a more accurate and complete story about the minimum wage. We hope you’ll take just a few minutes to complete this survey. And stay tuned to hear what you told us when we report back the results later this month!
