The City of Costa Mesa has put off a decision about possible hazard pay for grocery and, pharmacy workers so its staff can do more research on the issue.

The proposed ordinance would give grocery and pharmacy workers an extra $4 per hour in hazard pay and, would last for 120 days. Santa Ana is also considering doing something similar but they also put off the decision for the moment.

A similar Hero’s Pay ordinance when in to effect in Long Beach but the next day the huge supermarket group Kroger announced that it was closing a Ralphs and, a Food 4 Less location in Long Beach because of the ordinance.
