Socialist Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant is not happy with Mayor Ed Murray’s decision to delay the announcement for a $15 per hour minimum wage hike. Murray decided to give the Income Inequality Committee—formed of business and labor representatives—more time to reach an agreement on a plan.
Sawant called the committee’s efforts a failure. What is Sawant’s reasoning? The false wisdom of a true socialist,
“Fundamentally, this is a process that left out 70 percent of the voters who want a strong measure and had business – which does not want to fight for 15 – in the committee.”
Yes—that’s right—the committee failed to reach a plan on implementing a $15 per hour minimum wage because it included the business community in negotiations. All things considered, the line of reasoning is right on par for a socialist… cut out businesses, the most important segment of the economy, and railroad your selfish economic agenda through whether they agree or not.
Question for Sawant:
Do businesses or labor/special interests provide jobs?
You see, all this time we were under the impression that businesses actually created the jobs…
