Not from The Onion

Today's LA Times reports this:
Labor leaders, who were among the strongest supporters of the citywide minimum wage increase approved last week by the Los Angeles City Council, are advocating last-minute changes to the law that could create an exemption for companies with unionized workforces.
Not a lot of comment is required. People who politic for a "level paying field" are typically not so candid about what is meant.  In this case, however, it could not be clearer: provide unionized shops anything bit a "level playing field."  How will our lapdog city council handle this one? I expect brain trusts are churning. Stay tuned.
