ONLY ON KIRO 7: Socialist councilwoman Kshama Sawant details $15 minimum wage plan


Seattle’s new Socialist council member details her new plans to ramp up the pressure for a $15 an hour minimum wage– so workers won’t have to compromise.

Kshama Sawant had her first meeting today as a member of the mayor’s advisory committee on a higher minimum wage.

She says it’s too early to tell how that process will turn out, so she’s organizing workers so that she can deal from a position of greater strength.

“If we want to see $15 an hour become a reality in Seattle for all the workers who need them, then the workers themselves need to be part of that movement..”
