    Pay up Beezos.

    Too bad a $15/hour is barely enough to scrape by most place in seattle anyway these days.

    Yeah, ideally (under capitalism I guess) you tie minimum wage to something like inflation and local housing prices or something.

    - not an economist

    lol f--- of course. Hopefully this at least includes the warehouse workers.

    not sure how it is in other major cities but the contractor greaze is an epidemic here...I was lucky enough to get hired on full time after three months of contracting at my last job but many people work for years with no bennies or perks.

    UFC fighters are "independent contractors". The gig economy has done the same s---. The state of labor in this country is abysmal.

    Minimum wage use to go up as productivity went up like pre-Regan. That’s when the middle class was the strongest, especially post WWII. Then trickle down economics became a thing...

    I have 30,000 hours in the Laborers International Union North America, I also am vested in the Teamsters, I bartend out of HERE union and I was in the Bricklayers Union for a couple of weeks.

    I always felt like it was a conspiracy how must middle class to poor people have no idea what Davis Bacon wages and COLA are.

    Right now I'm making $4,500 a week on a pretty cush job out of the Laborers and over the course of my career and average of $10 an hour has gone into 1 of 2 (at this moment, eventually I'll be vested in HERE, as well) federally backed Pensions... that's like putting $300,000 into blue chip stocks starting when I was 18.


    Since 2004 I have been arguing politics on various forums as a Union Democrat and I've only ever got was push back and from brainwashed poor people.
