The One Fair Wage campaign is currently gathering the signatures required to place a minimum wage increase initiative on the 2018 ballot.
The deadline for adding your name to the Michigan Minimum Wage Ballot Initiative is May 8th.
The measure would increase the state’s minimum wage to $10/hr in 2019; $10.65/hr in 2020; $11.25/hr in 2021; and $12/hr in 2022.
The initiative would also increase the minimum wage for tipped employees to 48 percent of state minimum wage by 2019; to 60 percent by 2020; to 70 percent by 2021; to 80 percent by 2022; to 90 percent by 2023 and to 100 percent by 2024 and thereafter.
MCHR strongly supports the One Fair Wage campaign and the long overdue increase in pay for the thousands of minimum wage workers who are so poorly paid that they struggle to provide for themselve and their families.
