In an effort to thwart the will of the voters and the District Court, the city of Minneapolis is wasting taxpayer money to defend poverty wages, appealing to the Minnesota Supreme Court to keep a $15 minimum wage charter amendment off the ballot.
The decision to appeal, despite a damning ruling by Judge Robiner and support for the charter amendment from 68% of Minneapolis voters, had been requested by big downtown business groups like the Chamber of Commerce, which has now filed a legal brief on the city's behalf. The city has enlisted a private practice lawyer who also advised the city on how to override the will of voters on the Vikings stadium.
The day after the case is heard in the Supreme Court, the full City Council will meet. Join us to tell them to drop the appeal and #LetMplsVote!
