In Michigan, the state Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 to send a proposal raising the state minimum wage to $12/hour to the state ballot in November. The ballot initiative, which had been pushed by a group called Michigan One Fair Wage, would increase the current state minimum wage of $9.25 to $12/hour by 2022 and eliminate the tipped wage (currently $3.25) completely by 2024. The Board of State Canvassers, which was charged with certifying the signatures on the petition, was deadlocked on the issue at 2-2. A separate initiative mandating paid sick leave on private employers has already been certified and is on the ballot as well. The legislature could still pass its own version of a minimum wage hike and/or a paid sick leave mandate and thereby block either or both of these questions from the ballot.
