Minimum Wage Petitions Turned into SD Secretary of State

Backers of an initiated measure that would raise the minimum wage in South Dakota turned in their petitions to the Secretary of State today.

Zach Crago, Executive Director of the Democratic Party says they have more than they need……

 

They need just under sixteen thousand valid signatures to get the measure on the ballot.

Crago said they were pleased to go well over their goal, and says there is a message in that………

 

Crago says they know they still have hard work before next year’s election……

The petition drive was organized by the democratic party and state labor groups.

The measure would raise the minimum wage to eight fifty an hour from the current seven twenty five, and index it to inflation every year.
