S.141, S.142 – Constitutional Amendment to Create & Advisory Question Referendum Regarding a State Minimum Wage

S.141 would amend the Constitution to require a state minimum wage that is at least one dollar more than the federal minimum wage, must be adjusted annually for inflation, and would provide civil causes of action and legal relief for violation.

S.142 would place a non-binding advisory question on the ballot regarding a state-imposed minimum wage that is one dollar more than the federal minimum wage.

Minimum wage laws harm business by driving up costs, and harm low-skilled individuals by denying them entry level jobs which they could use to build experience and skills, leading to advancement and a higher wage.
