This is crazy because with inflation itíll just put them back where they were with their previous wage only itíll look like progress was made!
Yeah. That is mentioned several times in the article. The governor's rep even mentioned this is to keep wages in line with inflation. Nobody is claiming this is raising wages for any reason besides that.

This is interesting though

The 2016 law was a compromise agreed to by state lawmakers after liberal activists qualified a ballot measure that called for an immediate increase to $15 an hour. The group agreed to withdraw its effort in favor of the law signed by Brown.
I don't think you should be able to take your initiative off the ballot once you have enough signatures for it to qualify. I don't think you can do that here in Oregon. I can remember there being ballot measures where the people that originally supported it changed their mind and campaigned against it.
