NARRATIVE

Initiative Petition to amend the Constitution by adding a new section providing that employers must pay a minimum wage of $5.15 per hour, if the employer provides health benefits, or $6.15 per hour if the employer does not provide health benefits; that providing health benefits means health insurance will be made available to the employee and dependents with premiums paid by the employee not to exceed 10% of the employee's gross taxable income from the employer; that the minimum wage shall be adjusted to the greater of any increases in the federal minimum wage or the cumulative increase in the cost of living; and that such provisions may not be waived by agreement between the employer and employee. Initiative will be placed on the ballot for the 2004 General Election. If it passes, it will then be placed on the ballot again in 2006.
