More than 34,000 people in Colorado could get a raise this fall if voters pass a constitutional amendment to increase the minimum wage from $5.15 to $6.85 an hour. Dan Meyers speaks with Linda Meric, executive director of 9 to 5, National Association of Working Women, one of several groups promoting the measure, and Tony Gagliardi president of the Colorado chapter of the National Federation of Independent Businesses, who says the measure could put companies out of business.
