Cleveland, OH to Consider Raising Minimum Wage in 2017 Special Election
Cleveland City Council approved a proposal this week to put a minimum wage increase before the voters in a 2017 special election.
If passed by the voters, the proposal would increase the city minimum wage to $12 per hour in January 2018 and increase the wage $1 annually thereafter for three additional years.
The issue will appear on the ballot on May 2, 2017.
