Washington Democrats’ have included multiple state income taxes and a socialized medicine/single-payer healthcare system in the latest version of their party platform. So, it should come as no surprise that in the liberals’ attempt to put give government even more power of the people that their platform also calls for a statewide $15 minimum wage.
“An incremental increase in the state and federal minimum wage, to reach $15.00 per hour by 2020, with regular increases thereafter, indexed to inflation.”
And, for good measure, Democrats’ platform also states that they oppose “using tips as part of a minimum wage calculation.”
In other words, not only do Democrats want to impose potentially devastating labor costs, they want to take away one of the key solutions that restaurants could rely on to stay in business.
Democrats’ plans for our state are — simply put — invasive. They would like nothing more to control every aspect of life/business — and that’s not only harmful, but it’s unacceptable.
