UPDATED, 6:30 AM, 12/9/15: Seems this campaign is being orchestrated by the "think tank" called NPRI, the Nevada Policy Research Institute. Seems Faith Lutheran's principal received the letter from Mountain View Principal Kris Schneider, who told me Tuesday night after I was tipped to NPRI's involvement:

Initiative filed to increase the minimum wage
An initiative was filed Monday in Nevada to increase the minimum wage via the Constitution, eventually to $13 an hour by 2024. The filing, from some (but hardly all) labor groups and progressives, is designed to erase a current constitutional provision that bifurcates the minimum wage, allowing employers who provide health insurance (including garbage coverage) to pay only $7.25 and others to pay $8.25. The wage would go to $9.25 if it were to pass twice, as required, and then go up 75 cents a year until Jan. 1, 2024.
