American Hotel & Lodging Assn. v. City of Los Angeles

Los Angeles ordinance setting $15.75 minimum hourly wage is not pre-empted by the National Labor Relations Act.  The NLRA does not preempt state or local laws that prescribe minimum labor standards, though it does preempt laws that interfere with the collective bargaining process.  Here, LA’s ordinance prescribing a $15.75 per hour minimum wage was a minimum labor standard that escaped NLRA preemption.

Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (Pregerson, J.); August 23, 2016; 2016 WL 4437618
