    Seattle seems like a lovely place for a social experiment. Let's put aside fears of any pain or suffering people might feel and just focus on analyzing the results to see if having government set wage limits is really a good idea.

    Isn't "An economy that works for everyone" just a new wrapping on the old Marxist theories?

    My High School age grandson lives in the Seattle area, and he told me that he thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad thing. He has seen first hand how inflation has taken hold in Washington State vs prices he experiences here in Texas and elsewhere.

    Left to it's own, it would never increase. Someone has to take a leadership role.

    Another "feel-good" idea that sounds good and is thus endorsed by the low-information group. The minimum wage in Switzerland is almost $20/hour, and that's why a small Whopper meal costs almost $15. We couldn't afford to eat there. Part-time jobs are supposed to supply a little supplemental income, not provide a living wage.

    People need to educate themselves, using rational facts rather than emotions.

    I already refuse to eat at McDonald's. If they raise the price of food there will definitely be no way of getting me to eat there. The food quality is terrible and the workers can't even put together your order right a lot of the time. Fix those problems and maybe, just maybe I would consider eating there again and paying more. Until then, forget it.
