    Seattle mayor unveils plan for $15 minimum wage

    Seattle could soon lay claim to the nation's highest minimum wage.

    Mayor Ed Murray unveiled on Thursday his proposal for a $15 minimum wage, a plan he said has broad support across the local government, business and labor communities.

    Washington already has the nation's highest state-level minimum wage of $9.32. The Seattle proposal would be more than double the current federal minimum wage of $7.25.

    Mayor Murray's plan would take effect over several years and apply first to some large businesses starting in 2017, and ultimately to all businesses by 2021

    How are they legally allowed to apply it to some businesses before others?

    Why not make a seperate minimum wage for people under 18 and people over 18?

    The same thing we say everytime the minimum wage was increased: "abolish the minimum wage".

    If it's so great though, why not make it mandatory for all businesses at the same time? Why should the size of the business matter if it's good for everyone?

    Why not just make the minimum wage $300,000 per year? Then we'd all be rich!
