City Inside/Out: Initiative I-1433 Debate

POLL: Do you support I-1433 (minimum wage hike)?

Should the state's minimum wage increase from $9.47 to $13.50 an hour over the next four years? And should workers be given up to seven paid sick and safe days per year? Supporters of I-1433 say the measure will boost our economy and protect families, but critics argue local businesses and rural communities will suffer if it passes. Hear both sides of the issue.
