From the Yes on 1433 Campaign

Yes on 1433 Petition Drive Exceeds Signature Goal

The Yes on 1433 Campaign has reached 191,917 signatures and counting in their effort to get the initiative on the fall ballot. They exceeded their goal of 190,000 signatures with volunteers in four months, and the signatures are still coming in. The impressive signature total reflects the strong commitment their volunteers made to get I-1433 on the ballot, as well as the public's overwhelming support of this issue.

Because of these efforts, voters will have the long-awaited opportunity to demand support for Washington’s workers by voting to raise the minimum wage and pass paid sick & safe leave. We want to thank all the volunteers for staying dedicated to this important work-- what was accomplished these last few months will make a positive impact on Washington State for years to come.
