Jobless in Seattle
The outrageously smug liberals in Washington passed a $15 minimum wage that takes effect on April 1. It's a hilarious coincidence that it is April Fool's Day, as dozens of Seattle restaurants and shops are closing because they cannot afford to pay entry-level workers who perform menial tasks that much money. Instead of awarding them more of employers' money, the fools who passed this idiotic "living wage" law have reduced those workers' wage to $0.
Seattle is well on the way to becoming Detroit as business owners relocate or just give up trying to make livings running business that depend on low-skill, low-wage workers.
