Minneapolis City Attorney Plans To Appeal $15 Min. Wage Decision

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minneapolis city officials are appealing a judge's decision to put a minimum wage vote on November's ballot.

On Monday, Judge Susan Robiner ordered the minimum wage referendum to be placed on the Nov. 8 ballot.

Minneapolis City Attorney Susan Segal said Tuesday evening that the city has also filed a petition for accelerated review by the Minnesota Supreme Court. The city hopes there will be a ruling before this fall's election.

Minnesota Neighborhoods Organizing For Change held a rally in favor of the minimum wage ruling Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday, NOC created an event entitled "Rally For $15."

NOC said the inclusion of the referendum on the ballot is a major victory for workers in Minneapolis, but it also begins a new phase of the campaign.
