Joe Sanberg, a Los Angeles investor and anti-poverty activist, has spearheaded the Living Wage Act of 2022. Sanberg said he will finance the signature-gathering process to qualify the ballot initiative for the November election. It would gradually increase the state minimum wage starting in 2023, then rise to $18 an hour for all-sized businesses by 2026.
