Now that's a solution to create more jobs.  But why stop at $9.  Make it $29!

Creating yet another issue for the 2014 campaign.

Seattle is already at $9.19 an hour as Washington has the highest minimum wage in the Nation.  But there is an active push on right now, backed by Big labor, to raise it to $15 for grocery clerks, baristas, and other unskilled minor laborers. 

How much do you think a cup of Joe will run you if the pierced and tattooed wonder brewing it makes $15 an hour?? 

Madness....

They're going to find out in Sea-Tac in Washington state, where there's a ballot proposition to raise the minimum wage to exactly that amount.

It likely will pass...
