Main Street Alliance of Washington Leaders call for $12 Min Wage

WA 15Business owners working with The Main Street Alliance of Washington came together in Olympia on Monday, 3/30 to call on the Washington Legislature to "do their jobs" and support economy-boosting legislation in Washington. Small business owners from across the state called for an increase in the minimum wage, citing "customers" as their biggest concern and laying out the basic economic argument that when their customers have more money in their pockets, they can spend more in local businesses.
Here are some media stories from the hearings:
