LANSING – The Michigan Supreme Court announced this month that it will consider issuing an opinion about the constitutionality of a lame duck period proposal for higher minimum wage that was struck down during that transition period. Dr. Alicia Renee Farris is the state director of Restaurant Opportunities Center of Michigan and chair of the Michigan One Fair Wage steering committee. One Fair Wage’s goal is to raising the state minimum wage to a livable one and Farris recently spoke out about this consideration.
“We are pleased the Michigan Supreme Court has agreed to consider issuing an opinion about this very important issue that is central to our democracy and the rule of law,” Farris said. “We are hopeful the Michigan Supreme Court will stand with Michigan workers and the more than 400,000 Michigan voters who signed the One Fair Wage petition and approved raising the minimum wage to $12 for all Michigan workers.”
