    What happened? It had little impact as Washington state is in the top 3 with the lowest percentage of minimum wage workers in the country. Impact is small when those it impacts is small. Areas with above average cost of living generally have wage workers that make above minimum wage. Just the way it is.

    A MW raise doesn't always make unemployment go up. Sometimes it just makes prices go up instead.

    But most assuredly, one or the other goes up.

    depends on the hike in minimum wage.

    for every 10% increase there is about a 20% decline in employment or employment oppertunities.
    Politics is politics and that is all the dem's have is pandering to people the promise of more money.

    of coures they don't have to pay for the minimum wage increase so they don't care. honestly i think we should make all of these people pay all their staffers.
    no more internships. then lets see them howl and scream at the costs.

    After Wednesday's vote, Democratic senators sought to use the defeat as a rallying cry for November.

    "Low-income people tend not to vote, but on this, this would be one that they come out on because it's a pocketbook issue for them," said liberal Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa.


    Votes are cheap these days. Now you can buy them for a mere $2.85 per hour.

    Oh, jeez, why all the frittering around? Why don't the dems just propose that we mint that $trillion coin, and give one to everybody? Well, the problem there is that those voters wouldn't need the dems anymore. All the trillionaires would want tax cuts. And, of course, the dems don't want people on their level, they just want the carrot on a stick so that they keep begging for just a little more. Plus, $100 billion for a cup of coffee doesn't sound so good.
