The language that appeared on the ballot:

This amendment creates a Florida minimum wage covering all employees in the state covered by the federal minimum wage.

It provides for enforcement, including double damages for unpaid wages, attorney's fees, and fines by the state. It forbids retaliation against employees for exercising this right.
