Greenberg Quinlan Rosner congratulates our client, The San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, on their leading role in helping San Diego last week become the largest city in the nation to raise its minimum wage. GQRR provided the polling that helped understand the contours of the debate and design the message strategy.

But the work is far from done. Opponents are already starting the process of gathering signatures to referendize the council-passed ordinance and try to take away the honest-day’s earnings of hard-working San Diegans who want to pay their bills and feed their families. We look forward to continuing this fight alongside our friends Richard Barrera and Kirsten Clemons at the Labor Council, Clare Crawford and team at the Center on Policy Initiatives, and strategist Larry Remer.
