As people trickled in the room filled with joyful conversations, music and the delicious scent of holiday treats brought to share.....Click here to Read Full Article

After a decades-long battle with California’s building industry, developers who want to fast-track housing production – especially in cities that have not built enough housing to keep pace with rising demand – will be required to pay higher wages and benefits to construction workers beginning Jan. 1.
