Senate Roll Call 556 on
2018 Legislative Initiative Petition 4: Increase statewide minimum wage mandate

Passed 24 to 13 in the Senate on September 5, 2018.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To make it unlawful to pay a worker less than $12.00 per hour by 2022, by gradually increasing the current $9.25 per hour mandate. Also, to eliminate a lower minimum wage imposed on employers of tipped workers by 2024, which is 38 percent of the minimum wage for others. (Under current law, a tipped-worker’s employer must still pay the difference between the lower amount and the regular minimum wage if tips come up short.) The measure would also increase a lower minimum wage that applies to 16- and 17-year-olds, and change the basis on which the current minimums are indexed to inflation.
Note: If the measure were placed on the ballot and approved by a majority of voters, any future amendments would require a ¾ supermajority vote in the House and Senate. But if enacted by the legislature like a regular bill it can amended later with a simple majority vote. Negotiations are underway over amending the measure after the November, 2018 election, in particular its elimination of a separate minimum wage for tipped workers.
