Initiative To Target Minimum Wage

A nonpartisan group is kicking off an initiative drive to raise Idaho's minimum wage to $8.10 by Jan. 1, 2015, to $8.95 by Jan. 1, 2016, and more afterward. Idaho's current minimum wage is $7.25. Five speakers will launch the initiative drive during a rally from 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday, June 8, at Riverstone Park. Speakers will be Father Roger LaChance, Anne Nesse, Patrick Lippert, Liz Moore, and Dr. Rolf Nesse. You can read the proposed initiative here.

Question: Would you sign a petition supporting an initiative like this?
