#1 Don't tell the city of Seatac; as of tonight the $15 an hour minimum wage ballot proposal has a 19 vote lead; they might want to try to up the ante if they get wind of this. Never mind the jobs that will be lost or the shops that will close.....

#2 Less-than-Part-Time, working NMT 10-12 hours a week like in France while still getting all the benefits + perks of the Soon-to-be-Global Welfare-Nanny State wid little to no change in income tax brackets/rates.

In France their Govt voted to impose a mere 75% tax rate, as opposed to the originally favored 100-114% tax rates, until the Govt. whiz kids discovered that the 100%-n-over rates were effectively the same per the mainstream.

The good news is that Muslims in Marseilles are still vowing to following only Islamic or Sharia law, NOT Secular, Democratic Socialist French law.

#7 Raising prices at an airport happens all the time, because the airport has a monopoly on air travelers. Raising the minimum wage will just raise prices on people visiting. It is not much different from the extra fees travelers pay on cabs that go to the airport, rental cars at the airport, or hotel taxes.

This is unusual only in that the workers are getting a share of the monopoly profits, instead of the government and businesses.
