Minnesota Greens take leading role in St. Paul minimum wage fight

Green Party Watch, January 10, 2015:

15nowThe St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that 15 Now, which has campaigned for a $15 per hour minimum wage in Minneapolis, has joined forces with St. Paul-based $15 in ’16 to create 15NowSTP to campaign for a $15 minimum in Minnesota’s capital city. Green Party activists Brandon Long and Jesse Mortenson are among the leaders of the new group.

The newspaper says that Long, “who foresees a minimum wage increase going to ballot referendum in Minneapolis, said the proposed St. Paul ordinance ‘will be strengthened to better match the eventual language of the Minneapolis ballot initiative.’”
