Let the People Vote for $15: Minneapolis Fight for $15 Takes on City Hall Obstruction

The movement for a $15 minimum wage is strong in Minneapolis. In two months of petitioning at street fairs and in neighborhoods throughout the city, 15 Now and our partners collected nearly three times the number of signatures needed to qualify for the ballot.

Fed up with city council inaction, workers are taking our own initiative to end poverty wages and begin to address our worst-in-the-nation racial and economic inequalities in Minneapolis. But now opponents of $15 are moving to block our ballot initiative—not by debating the issue itself, but by questioning the legitimacy of using the democratic process to set the minimum wage.
