Legislative Week in Review, Louisiana’s Minimum Wage Debate, Boot Camp is Fun

Louisiana’s Minimum Wage Debate (01:19) The showdown over whether Louisiana should establish a minimum wage happens at the state capitol in just a couple of weeks. This hot button issue has supporters and opponents fiercely fighting for their side. The governor opposes it, but several bills have been filed to make it law. Where do you stand? Hear both sides this week with Erika Zucker of the Workplace Justice Project and Renee Amar of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry. SHARE

Legislative Week in Review (11:32) Week 3 of the regular session included members of AARP and Together Louisiana meeting with lawmakers to address predatory lending practices. Rep. Mike Huval (R-Breaux Bridge) wants to ban drivers using hand held cell phones and Rep. Steve Pylant (R-Winnsboro) hopes to combat small town speed traps by alerting motorists with a flashing “Speed Trap Ahead” sign. Charlie Whinham reviews this week at the capitol. SHARE
