KING 5: Inslee v. Bryant on statewide minimum wage
Gov Inslee wants to raise the minimum wage statewide to $13.50 by 2020.
I've already voted to raise the minimum wage at SeaTac to $13.50 by 2017. That made sense at SeaTac, but imposing a statewide minimum wage that's based on Seattle's cost of living could cause people in small towns to lose their jobs.
Washington State already has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country, I don't want to take away jobs from those who need them the most.
KING 5 TV covers how differently Inslee and I approach this issue.
