Minimum Wage Initiative Debate

Minimum Wage Initiative Debate

Alaska voters have the opportunity to say ‘yay’ or ‘nay’ on a higher minimum wage.

What are the potential effects to Alaska’s economy? Is this a win for businesses and for workers, or does one side benefit at the other’s expense? Hear the minimum wage initiative debated at a public forum hosted by Alaska Common Ground.

Forum On the Oil Tax Referendum

Forum On the Oil Tax Referendum

Taxes from oil production pay for a hefty chunk of Alaska’s state government.

On August 19, voters will have the chance to repeal those cuts. Alaska Common Ground brings panelists from both sides of the debate to hash out the details of the oil tax referendum on the table.
