Seattle City Council is expected to approve a fifteen dollar minimum wage later today. This will probably make the national news.

The grand experiment begins.

Actually, it probably began in SeaTac, which has a complex definition of which businesses have to pay the new wage and which don't. I believe the wages increase incrementally over the next four or five years. The airlines have already filed suit and won a decision that the law cannot apply to the airport employees.

California's minimum wage is increasing incrementally to $13 over the next few years. I cannot imagine the number of lawsuits that will ensue.

But, not matter what, hooray for Seattle.

I know nothing about the people of Seattle. Are they strongly behind this? (By that, of course, I mean are they predominantly actual human beings or right wing robots?)

Seattle's pretty liberal. We"re always #1 or #2 in the polls of most literate cities.

Literate? Okay. We once made #1 in the poll for happiest city in the country.
(No, they didn't interview me.)

Yes. I was quite happy about being left out of the process.
