According to Washington Examiner, California‘s governor, Gavin Newsom signed a law that will increase the minimum wage for healthcare workers to at least $25 an hour by 2028. However, this decision has caused financial problems for the state. The law is expected to cost California an additional $4 billion per year in Medicaid costs and compensation for workers at state-owned facilities.

The law was supported by the Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West, which claims that the increase will help ensure patients receive good care. However, some people think that the law is not a good idea and will cause higher healthcare costs for patients. The law’s author, Democratic state Sen. Maria Elena Durazo, has asked to delay the implementation of the law until July 1, 2024.
