Amendment 42 is a very well-thought-out solution to the problem of the ridiculously low federal minimum wage. It would raise Colorado’s minimum wage immediately from $5.15 to $6.85, and then it woud adjust the minimum wage every year to account for inflation. This would ensure we don’t see a decade go by without a raise to the minimum wage. And since it’s in the constitution, the minimum wage would not be at the mercy of a Governon who doesn’t believe in helping out the lower classes (e.g. Bill Owens).
