This spring, Raise the Wage Davis is collecting signatures for a November city ballot initiative to increase the minimum wage in Davis to $15 per hour on Jan. 1, 2016.
On the current edition of the KDRT radio show “Davisville,” Neil Ruud, volunteer coordinator for the group, discusses their reasons, plans and why they chose $15. He also fields questions about the impact on employment in Davis.
“Davisville,” hosted by Bill Buchanan, airs on KDRT, 95.7 FM, at 5:30 p.m. Mondays, 8:30 a.m. Wednesdays and 7:30 a.m. Saturdays. The $15 minimum-wage interview debuted Monday and will be broadcast through April 12. It is also available online at http://kdrt.org/node/14228.
