As stated, Unions include Total Compensation in thier agreements . So maybe they should get I the same buss out of own as Meinert?

You know who else doesn't oppose total compensation ? The same people who have created the only cut-out in the proposal. The Labour Unions. This is because they not only support it , they use it in their own contracts. They consider Health care, meals , retirement, transportation etc. as part of TOTAL COMPENSATION.

"Total compensation attempts to do nothing less than redefine the meaning of an hourly minimum wage" But this is EXACTLY what Labour Unions Do Already! And who has given themselves the only cut-out in the proposal? The Unions! Why? Because they consider benefits such as employee meals, retirement and health care when negotiating...TOTAL COMPENSATION.
Considering the author's question "how do you enforce it"? Simple, a part of this should be an establishment of an agency within the city to do so. This is working in other cities and would also address the other issues mentioned later such as the wage theft cited here.
I have read that over 80% of MW jobs locally are with huge corporate companies.This isn't about shorting people working at McCorperate Jobs , it's about allowing people who are earning a good living working for Seattle independent Businesses who are being lumped in to this the ability to maintain their situations and the Small Businesses to be able to compete with these behemoths .

It should be very apparent that 116 is a 15Now Shill.

As I recall the DC Measure had controls in it for national chains sharing one identity.
@14 These Businesses have shareholders to answer to and what's more, the wage would be off the gross earnings of the company according to the IRS.

It seems like a viable option especially since the rallying point for the higher minimum wage was around McDonalds etc. It would be interesting to see what Big Biz would do to fight this on their own without hiding behind small biz.
@7 That seems highly unlikely given that once the Genie's out of the bottle..
@ 9, Did you mean Loopholes like the Labour Unions are asking for themselves?
