One of the groups pushing the idea of $15/hour minimum wages for fast food workers, 15Now.org, is advocating amendments to Seattle Mayor Ed Murray recently filed proposal to require $15 minimum wage phased in over 3 to 7 years because the proposal doesn’t go far enough!  The Mayor’s proposal, which would require firms with more than 500 employees to implement the $15 wage over 3 years and over a 7 year period for those companies with fewer than 250 employees, will be the subject of a public hearing before the Seattle City Council next Tuesday, May 13 at 6:00 PM.  The public hearing will be held at the Rainier Beach High School in Seattle.
