John Morgan, the ambulance chasing personal injury attorney that made his fortune using his tagline “for the people,” has gathered signatures to put a constitutional amendment to the state constitution on the ballot. That amendment would raise Florida’s minimum wage to $15 an hour. Since Disney has already taken this step, the biggest player in the state will likely back the measure in order to level the playing field.
Morgan appears to be making a play to run for public office in the future. You may remember that he was the force behind legalizing medical marijuana and decriminalizing recreational marijuana in the state.

Doesn't that mean they will have to set minimum wage through constitutional amendment forever? Assuming they can always get raises voted in, there are campaigns to increase the margins required to win and one campaign to end the whole process, they can't do that more often than every couple of years.
Do you think after enough people see the effects of losing their jobs, or friends and family losing those jobs, they might learn cause and effect?
