Letter: The bigger picture of Amendment 70

The bigger picture of Amendment 70

I encourage everyone to vote “yes” on Amendment 70 to raise Colorado’s minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2020.

True, this might not affect many people in this valley, where wages are higher. But believe me, it will make a world of difference to folks in the economically struggling parts of the state — like Grand Junction, where I work during the week.
