Check this out: Seattle Increases the Minimum Wage

You have probably already heard this news since it’s a pretty big deal. But if not, HELLO Seattle raised it’s minimum wage to $15 (phased in over 7 years)!

In my opinion, this is a step in the right direction for the nation. Other big cities are already talking about following suit, so Seattle is making a precedent and will be an example for everywhere else.

Honestly, I haven’t followed this case very closely so I’m not familiar with what the opposition has presented. However, I think it is disgraceful that a profitable business cannot pay it’s employees enough to keep them out of poverty. If a business can only be “profitable” (subjective term) by paying it’s employees shit, then the business plan needs to be revised.

Seattle Goes to the Mat for Minimum Wage.
