How much should Colorado pay for a day of labor?

Next with Kyle Clark. 9NEWS at 6 p.m. 09/05/16.

Colorado is faced with a question this Labor Day about the value of a day at work, for those who earn the least.

November's ballot - coming to your mailbox in a month and some change - includes a proposed change to the minimum wage.

How has a minimum wage increase worked in other states?

It would raise it from $8.31, which higher than the federal minimum wage, to $12 by 2020.

Progressive groups are for it.

Business groups opposed.

And Governor Hickenlooper is stuck in the middle - undecided.

"I haven't made up my mind on it," he told 9NEWS political reporter Brandon Rittiman. 

He added he is interested in plans that raise the minimum wage in cities like Denver, but not in rural Colorado. 

Watch Brandon's  - with comments on immigration, the Aurora theater shooter, RTD and joining Hillary Clinton's cabinet - below.
