Vice President Joe Biden embraces Bobrick Washroom Equipment employee Rigoberto Hernandez, who has worked for the company for 29 years. Biden spoke July 22 at the company in North Hollywood to push for an
increase in the minimum wage and expansion of overtime protections.
ice President Joe Biden on Wednesday visited Bobrick Washroom Equipment Inc., a manufacturing firm headquartered in North Hollywood, in what his staff said was an effort to promote the importance of
middle-class jobs and to boost the nationwide campaign to raise the minimum wage.
Prior to holding a news conference, Biden toured the Bobrick plant with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl. The visit came a day after L.A. County approved a plan
to gradually raise the minimum wage in unincorporated areas of the county to $15 an hour, mirroring legislation passed in May by the L.A. City Council.
Company President Mark Louchheim led Biden through a concrete-floored assembly room where employees in safety glasses were bent over their work stations building and testing soap dispensers.
"Our job is to hire talent," Louchheim said. Some of those at work had been employed at Bobrick for more than two decades.
