Election 2016: Colorado Minimum Wage Amendment

Posted: August 18, 2016 at 11:32 am by , in A Public Affair, Breaking News, Elections, Featured, News and Public Affairs

This November, Colorado voters will be asked to decide on whether or not to increase the minimum wage to $9.30 per hour with annual increases of $0.90 each January 1 until it reaches $12 per hour effective January 2020, and annually adjusting it thereafter for cost-of-living increases.

Patty Kupfer, the Campaign Manager for Colorado Families for a Fair Wage speaks in favor of the campaign and Tyler Sandberg with Keep Colorado Working, speaks against the measure.
