The $15/hr minimum wage campaign is a joke. It is designed to garner political capital for those who conceived it. No doubt true-believers as well as opportunists support the initiative, and they are to be lauded, but there is no chance the increased minimum will be approved by Olympia, as no doubt most of the people advocating it, including most assuredly our erstwhile mayor, fully understand.
That having been said, this Times piece laments that the increased wage will hurt the homeless. (Yes!)
