A recent study roiled the Left and encouraged pro-business advocates, who warned about raising the minimum wage too quickly. The study pointed out that the increased minimum wage in Seattle, Washington, decreased about $125 for minimum wage workers per month, or about 9% of their hours worked. Talk about a failure of the union-backed ‘fight […]
Seattle, Washington, hardly a moderate or conservative city, filed a lawsuit against the federal government (i.e. the Trump administration) over “sanctuary city” status and federal funding.
