  •  I would geuss that the push for $15 has replaced (2+ / 0-)

    the living wage. I like the specificity of $15, but since it will likely be phased in anywhere is it passed, it may/may not constitute a living wage depending on where you live.

      The specificity (or target) of the $15hr minimum wage is the best part i think too.

      If its $15hr in Seattle, then not having it be $15hr in San Francisco or Chicago (or New York City) seems ridiculous.
