Endorsement: Vote for amendment No. 2, because Florida’s workers deserve a better minimum wage

There are legitimate reasons for concern if Amendment 2 passes. Some studies show raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour would cost jobs. Other studies dispute that. Whichever you believe, there’s no doubt Florida has neglected its low-income population. Orlando’s tourism-loving economy is especially cruel. Amendment 2 would do far more good than harm here, so we are endorsing it.
