LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- In two years, California voters could decide if the state's minimum wage should increase to $18 an hour.
According a report published by the Orange County Register, supporters of the initiative have gathered enough valid signatures to get the measure on the ballot for the general election in November 2024.
The measure would increase the state's minimum wage to $18 by 2026.
The state's minimum wage is already set to increase to $15.50 for all workers in 2023.
The initiative is being led by entrepreneur and anti-poverty advocate Joe Sanberg.
The Orange County Register reports Sanberg has said an $18 minimum wage would give $6,240 more per year to more than 5 million California workers.
A similar effort to place the measure on the ballot this year was unsuccessful because not enough signatures could be verified ahead of the deadline.
