SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The Florida Supreme Court will not hold oral arguments on a proposed constitutional amendment that would increase the state’s minimum wage after it did not receive any briefs on the issue.
The state’s minimum wage this year is $8.46 an hour. The proposal would increase the minimum wage to $10 an hour in 2021, with it increasing by a dollar each year until it hits $15 an hour in 2026.
The court is now reviewing the wording of the proposed amendment.
Supreme Court approval of wording is a key step in the process of getting amendments on the ballot.
