Seattle Citizens Push Back on Minimum Wage

The minimum wage has been a major plank in the Democratic platform for years, with lawmakers continually pushing for increases, both at the state and federal level. Earlier this year, President Obama made a hard push for an increase in the federal minimum wage from it’s current level of $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour, backed by Harry Reid and a majority of Democrats in the Senate.
