$15 Minimum Wage in Seattle Working Fine So Far

leave a comment »

And for some good news, Kevin Drum points out an interesting study on how we know the $15 minimum wage is working.

I think it’s tell that so many businesses in the US simply don’t want to pay their full-time employees enough money to live on. Shouldn’t that be against the law?

Well, it is: that’s the idea behind the minimum wage. And, to be honest, $15/hour really is minimum, if that. A person should earn enough in a full-time job to support themselves, even if they have a child. This is supposed to be civilization, not some dystopian science-fiction fantasy. (I’m watching Aeon Flux right now.)
