What is Amendment 2, and why is it bad for Florida?
If passed, this amendment would make Florida the first and only state in the nation with a $15 an hour mandate in its state constitution, ensuring jobs lost due to the pandemic will not return, and businesses already devastated by the effects of the virus may never bounce back. This will slow Florida’s economic recovery and hurt the very people the special interest behind this scam claims it helps.
America’s largest personal injury trial law firm – the same one looking to capitalize on the COVID-19 pandemic by suing small businesses – has spent millions to put Amendment 2, mandating a $15 minimum wage, on the November ballot. With local businesses struggling and not able to reopen due to COVID-19, along with hundreds of thousands of Floridians out of work, now is not the time to mandate Florida’s minimum wage to $15 per hour.
