Elections Bureau Recommends Approval of Minimum Wage, Paid Sick Time Proposals

The Department of State Bureau of Elections concluded that both the One Fair Wage proposal to increase the minimum wage and the MI Time to Care proposal to require employers to provide paid sick time had collected enough signatures to be passed to the Legislature.

The bureau rejected a variety of challenges to the minimum wage petitions, though noting that some of the challenges are still pending before the Court of Appeals.

The reports showed One Fair Wage had collected 283,544 valid signatures and MI Time to Care had collected 271,088. Each needed 252,523 valid signatures.
