Referendum Launched to Raise Maine's Minimum Wage

Six Mainers of diverse backgrounds from all over the state each took their turn signing an application in Augusta today to begin gathering signatures for a citizen-initiated referendum to raise the minimum wage. The referendum, intended for the 2016 ballot, would see the minimum wage in Maine raised from $7.50 an hour to $9 an hour in 2017 and then by a dollar a year until 2020, when it would reach $12 an hour and then be indexed to the cost of living in future years.
