"In a pair of wins for workers, residents across the state of Florida and in Portland, Maine voted Tuesday for ballot measures to establish a $15 minimum hourly wage, more than double the $7.25 required at the federal level.
Welcoming the news out of the Sunshine State, Service Employee International Union (SEIU) president Mary Kay Henry said in a statement that "cooks and cashiers, airport workers, nursing home workers, higher ed workers, and janitors across the state of Florida demonstrated their power this election, turning cheers for essential workers into a historic raise for nearly 2.5 million Floridians."
"When working people come together, they can affect real change everywhere all across our country," she continued. "To corporations like McDonald’s that have fought tooth and nail to silence workers: we are done with people at the top making decisions about us, without us. No matter where we live, we won’t stop fighting until all workers are paid $15/hr and have a voice on the job.”"
