Minimum wage and fighter jets make noise

Voters on May 18, 2014 clearly threw out a proposal to introduce what would have been the world's highest minimum wage. In a much closer result, the Swiss turned down the government's request to purchase Gripen fighter jets from Sweden. Two other proposals were accepted: an initiative to introduce a lifelong ban on convicted paedophiles to work with children and a constitutional amendment to boost the status of family doctors.
