Labor Union Says California Minimum Wage Initiative has Enough Signatures for 2016 Ballot

Silicon Valley Business Journal (10/15/15) Bryce Druzin

An initiative to raise California’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2021 has enough signatures to qualify for the November 2016 ballot, according to SEIU-United Healthcare Workers West, which is promoting the measure. California requires 366,000 signatures for initiatives to be placed on the statewide ballot. SEIU-UHW West political director Arianna Jimenez says the union has a goal of reaching 610,000 before submitting the signatures to the California Secretary of State’s office in January 2016. If passed, the Fair Wage Act of 2016 will increase the state’s minimum wage to $11 in 2017. The wage will subsequently increase $1 each year until it reaches $15 in 2021. After that, the wage will increase to match changes in California’s Consumer Price Index for urban workers.
