The Oakland City Council voted late Tuesday to scrap a plan that called for a gradual increase in the city's minimum wage for nonprofits and small businesses, instead leaving it up to the voters to consider a more aggressive proposal in November.Can Oakland handle even more unemployment via higher minimum wage?
The resolution, which was voted down 5-3 by the council, had called for Oakland to raise the city's minimum wage more slowly than a competing plan, called Lift Up Oakland, that will appear on the November ballot.
