Lawmakers Consider Adding Minimum Wage Increase to November Ballot
It'll be a couple of weeks before state senators and special interest groups decide if they'll launch a petition drive to put a minimum wage increase on the November ballot. In order to get it on the ballot, they'll need 80,000 verified signatures. Realistically, they'll need between 120,000 and 150,000, just to make sure at least 80,000 are verified. Dozens of supporters gathered on the steps of the State Capitol Building to make their voices heard on issues ranging from from wage increases to more accessible healthcare.
