Petition Drive To Increase Minimum Wage

Crago says they plan to set up a coordinated campaign with at least one paid staffer working with the volunteers…

The initiative would push the minimum wage from the current seven twenty five an hour to eight fifty, then index it to inflation so it would continue to rise.
