    Washington Examiner ^ | 8/13/16 12:01 AM | Sean Higgins
    As recently as last year, the Democratic Party’s leaders thought the idea of a $15 federal minimum wage was unrealistic and even pushed back against it. That ended in July when the official party platform, bowing to pressure from organized labor and Sen. Bernie Sanders and his supporters, adopted a call for a $15 federal minimum, more than double the current rate of $7.25 an hour. […] When Seattle increased its minimum to $15 in 2014, a boost of nearly $6 an hour, it also commissioned a study of the increase’s effect by the University of Washington. A report released...

    U.S. District Judge James Robart, pointedly reacting to the Seattle police union’s rejection of a tentative contract, said Monday he would not let the powerful labor group hold the city “hostage” by linking wages to constitutional policing. “To hide behind a collective- bargaining agreement is not going to work,” Robart said during a dramatic court hearing he opened by laying out a path for police-accountability reform and closed with an emotional declaration that “black lives matter.” Robart, who is presiding over a 2012 consent decree requiring the city to adopt reforms to address Department of Justice allegations of excessive force...

    Seattle is apparently breaking new ground by requiring landlords in the city to rent their housing units to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Officials say they’re unaware of any other U.S. city with a policy like the one the Seattle City Council approved Monday, along with other rental-housing changes. The goal is to ensure prospective renters are treated equally, according to Councilmember Lisa Herbold, who championed the policy. When landlords pick one renter among multiple qualified applicants, their own biases — conscious or unconscious — may come into play, she says. Some landlords don’t mind the policy, saying...

    aising the minimum wage is one of those wonderful-sounding ideas that, whenever tried, unfortunately never quite works the way it was promised. To its credit, the Washington Post has noticed. The Post recently highlighted a new study from a group of economists who were commissioned by the city of Seattle to look at that city's minimum wage hike from $9.96 an hour to $11.14 an hour. What they found was enlightening. To begin with, the economists said, some of the workers weren't helped at all, since their pay would have likely gone up anyway with experience and tenure on the...

    Seattle taxpayers are footing the bill in the latest left-wing indoctrination efforts regarding so-called “white privilege.” In this particular circumstance, the focus is actually on “white fragility,” and it is part of a set of “racial equity” workshops that Seattle’s Office of Arts and Culture is hosting in August and September. According to Seattle's city website, white fragility is defined as the “inability for white people to tolerate racial stress.” The scheduled workshops, organizers say, will help to address and correct that inability, as they will provide “the perspectives and skills needed for white people to have more constructive cross-racial...

The two “white fragility” workshops will take place on August 17 and September 7, running four hours each.

    Raise the minimum wage in Seattle they said. It will help workers they said. Well, the city did increase the minimum wage from the previous rate of $9.47 to $15, which is to be phased in by 2018. It’s now at $11, and lo and behold it has hurt workers. A study found that workers would’ve already seen an increase in wages without the hike because of the increased economic activity and more would’ve been employed. Instead, hours were cut, fewer people worked, and all of this was [predictable]: The average hourly wage for workers affected by the increase jumped...

    After nearly a week of testimony and consideration given to the punishment he will face, a Seattle doctor who admitted to murdering his partner and their toddler son was sentenced to 49 years in prison -- the maximum allowed. Louis Chen, 44, pleaded guilty to reduced charges in February, wanting to avoid a trial. He was sentenced Friday by King County Superior Court Judge Bill Bowman. Chen's defense attorneys spent this week arguing that his mental problems -- and a possibly psychosis-inducing intake of cough syrup -- fueled actions he would otherwise have never committed. On those grounds, they lobbied...

    The U.S. Supreme Court will not hear a challenge to Seattle's $15-an-hour minimum wage from franchise owners who say the law discriminates against them by treating them as large businesses. Seattle was one of the first cities in the nation to adopt a law aiming for a $15 minimum wage, giving small businesses employing fewer than 500 people seven years to phase it in. Large employers must do so over three or four years, depending on whether they offer health insurance to their employees. Franchises say they are small businesses and should have more time to phase in the higher...

    OK, I was watching local CBS news so I could watch 60 Minutes when it came on. Instead they have on wall to wall, live Camera coverage of May day protests. Now I might not have to say it, but at what point is the media actually responsible for the news? I mean if you put a camera on the street and tell folks they are going to be on the news, what kind of toadstools do you expect to show up? This whole thing is quite a bit over the top. And God forbid, they should be armed with...

    When signing the bill raising California’s minimum wage, Governor Jerry Brown called the new $15 minimum wage “good politics” but “questionable policy.” He may be more prescient than many realize. There was a time in recent American history when a minimum wage of nearly equal magnitude to California’s was imposed, and “good politics” turned out to be disastrous policy. It is worth remembering this previous minimum-wage experiment as voters assess whether the progressive push for substantially higher minimum wages will deliver prosperity for the working class. President Obama has long supported the so-called Raise the Wage Act, which, if passed,...
