Minimum wage ballot issue moves to MI Supreme Court


A group opposing one of the initiatives on the November ballot is asking the Michigan Supreme Court to block it.

The group “Michigan Opportunity” filed an appeal yesterday after the Court of Appeals ruled in favor of putting the “One Fair Wage” proposal on the ballot.

The initiative would raise the state’s minimum wage from $9.25 per hour  to $10 next year and $12 by 2022.

Tipped workers would get full minimum wage by 2024. 

They currently make $3.52,  before tips.
