What happens next: The cities are beginning the process to verify if the signatures submitted are valid. If the cities find the hospital industry has collected enough valid signatures, the healthcare worker minimum wage issue will be put before voters in the next election, currently March 2024. If the industry has failed to collect sufficient signatures, the ordinances will then go into effect.
