Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, Jimmy Patronis, took to social media today to urge Floridians to reject Ballot Amendment 2, which will raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, killing small businesses already devastated by COVID-19 and putting the jobs of hundreds of thousands of Floridians at risk.
“During these difficult times, we must protect small businesses,” his post said. “Ballot Amendment 2 would lead to thousands of Floridians losing their jobs, hours being cut, and an increase of the cost of living for seniors on a fixed income. Vote NO on 2.”

Ballot Amendment 2 will force businesses to slash hours, cut benefits, and eliminate jobs. We have seen this fail in other cities and at large retail brands across the nation.
Thank you CFO Patronis for advocating to SAVE FLORIDA JOBS.
