Poll shows South Dakota voters support increases in minimum wage

Posted:

A new survey shows South Dakota voters are in favor of raising the minimum wage. Four questions were asked to both democratic and republican voters back in early October.
 
The first was simply to raise minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.50 per hour. 63% of likely voters were in favor of the measure with just over 26% not in favor.
 
The second question was whether or not tipped employees should see a base increase from $2.13 to $4.25 per hour. Nearly 68% said they would support it with 17% saying they wouldn't.
 
When asked if the minimum wage should automatically increase with the cost of living, nearly 59% said yes with around 27% saying no.
 
The last question asked voters if they would support a measure that would include all three provisions. Around 54% said they would, and around 23% say they wouldn't.
 
Just over 800 potential voters were polled in the survey.
