Minimum Wage Hike Initiative on November Ballot for Kansas City, MO
Voters will decide whether to increase the city’s minimum wage on November 3.
If passed, the initiative would increase the city’s minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2020.
Opponents of the measure say such a change could cause businesses to leave the city. There is currently a group working to put a veto referendum on the November ballot.
