California Governor Jerry Brown Visits California Conservation Corps Headquarters

Some of the CCC’s Backcountry Trails staff with Gov. Brown

Governor Jerry Brown, who created the California Conservation Corps during his first term as governor in 1976, dropped by the CCC's Sacramento headquarters last week.  He chatted with the Backcountry Trails supervisors, who had just completed their 2013 season, as well as CCC staff members.

Earlier in the day, Gov. Brown had signed legislation increasing the state's minimum wage (to $10 by 2016).  Corpsmembers are now receiving $8/hour, the state's current minimum wage.
