Vice President Joseph Biden will be attending several Democratic party fundraisers in Los Angeles on Monday and Tuesday, which means local residents can expect traffic to be affected.

Biden's visit will come on the heels of a trip earlier in the day to Las Vegas, where he will headline a Democratic campaign rally, with a downtown appearance to talk about raising the minimum wage, according to the Associated Press.
Last week, U.S. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez raised the minimum wage for employees of federal contractors to $10.10 an hour. President Barack Obama is urging private employers to also raise the minimum wage from the current $7.25, AP reports.
Obama is expected to make stops in Los Angeles later this week.
