The Morgan Firm P.A. contributed nearly $1.075 million last month to the political committee Florida For A Fair Wage, which is trying to get the amendment on the November 2020 ballot, according to a newly filed finance report.
The Morgan Firm P.A. and Morgan & Morgan P.A. have contributed almost all of the $4.154 million raised by the committee, which is chaired by Morgan.
If approved by voters, the proposed amendment would increase the state’s minimum wage to $10 an hour on Sept. 30, 2021 and increase it by $1 each year until it hits $15 an hour on Sept. 30, 2026.
As of Monday afternoon, the state had received 510,890 signatures, according to the Florida Division of Elections website. Florida For A Fair Wage spent nearly $947,000 in July, with virtually all of the money going to petition-related expenses.
