@10: How 'bout they go to work? Unemployment is around 5% in King County. Not much worse North and South.
Shave you beard (or your legs), cut your hair, dress like a normal person, speak The King's English when trying to sell your labor, and you have a pretty good chance around here.

Yawn . . .
Wages are a commodity. Let the market set the price. Want more money? Make yourself more valuable.
What could a business owner expect out of employees if the minimum wage was raised to $15? A drastic reduction in sick leave use across the board? A sustained spike in productivity? Come on employees, what are you offering? Please tell me you're coming to the table with something more than a clever jingle chanted to the rhythm of a co-opted song.
