Abstract:

Ballot measures calling for an increase in the state minimum wage made their way onto ballots in Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Montana, Nevada and Ohio in 2006. Advocates and critics of the proposed increases raised a combined $14.4 million to argue their positions, but the positions of voters in all six states were clear - raise the minimum wage.
