Swiss set to vote on minimum wage increase

Voters will decide on Sunday if they agree with a proposal to raise the minimum wage to the highest in the world.

    Swiss citizens will vote on a proposal to set the world's highest minimum wage on Sunday.

    If passed, employers would have to pay their workers almost $4,500 each month.

    Supporters say it would create a decent life for all Swiss citizens.

    But critics warn that a minimum wage increase will result in layoffs.
