Over 25,000 service members from 23 countries are participating in this, the 24th multinational maritime exercise. From June 26th to August 1st the multinational armada of ships will train near the Hawaiian Islands.

This afternoon at 2:00 San Diego City Council will take up a proposal to raise the minimum wage. The proposal, being spearheaded by Council President Todd Gloria, is to set San Diego’s lowest pay at $13.09 an hour. Opponents to the raise are rallying before the council meeting at 1:30 in Civic Center Plaza. The group of business owners say that if the minimum wage is raised it’ll hurt their ability to stay in business and provide jobs. If the proposal makes it through council it’ll be put on November’s ballot.
