1. In May Seattle workers went on a one day strike. They were asking for $15/hour wages and the right

to organize. Our states minimum wage went from $9.04 to $9.19 this year. I love that they said screw that incremental crap and went all out for a $15/hour wage. That's the kind of bold action we need. We cannot simply raise our minimum wage by a few cents or by 1 or 2 dollars. We need a real raise. Something that will help lift people out of poverty.
