City of Spokane measure

City of Spokane Spokane Proposition 1

The Worker Bill of Rights is a four-pronged proposition that would amend the city charter to require large employers to pay workers a “family wage,” which would create a minimum wage that would differ based on each worker’s needs. It also would ensure equal pay for equal work regardless of gender or race and add protections against termination. The measure would make the rights of corporations secondary to people’s rights.
