‘Should We Raise the Minimum Wage’?

The Last Of The Millenniums

Here in Washington State, we voted to begin raising our minimum wage back in 1998. We base the raise each year on inflation.

Currently Washington State’s minimum wage is $9.13 an hour.

In Spokane, which is just 30 miles from Idaho – where the minimum wage is $7.25 – since 1998, we have has a 21% increase….yes increase in just the restaurant employment alone.

So when economic conservatives try to scare you with ‘It’ll destroy jobs especially in the food industry”…. No it doesn’t…just like the Card and Kreuger Study in NJ and PA.
