Portland to vote on $15 an hour

Press Herald - The Portland City Council considered two minimum wage initiatives Monday night, voting to place a citizens referendum to establish a $15-an-hour rate on the November ballot, while delaying a move to revise its own troubled ordinance to raise the minimum to $10.10 an hour. The council voted to delay until Sept. 9 reconsidering the ordinance it passed to adopt a citywide minimum wage higher than the state’s because it wanted to give staff more time to develop proposals for how to handle tipped workers.
