commented on Restaurateurs Had a Minimum-Wage Lunch Chat at City Hall Yesterday, and the Crowd Raged
I love the implication many of these restaurant owners make that, in absence of a minimum wage, the prices charged to customers will never ever EVER go up.
I challenge all anti-15ers to make a solemn pledge to never raise their prices if 15min passes.
Are those crickets? Yeah, kind of what I thought.
If this, and Prop 1, fail, Seattle might as well rename itself 'Lil Alabama' and raise the Stars and Bars over the Space Needle.

@5 Is grossly overestimating WizardWorld's reach and competence.
They've never run a show that's been popular and the highlight of any of their shows is usually the wrestling ring they set up in the middle of the dealer's room.
ECCC has little to worry about. WizardWorld has money and nothing else.

@41 Hostess was run by Private Equity vultures (think Mitt Romney) who make money if a business fails. Especially if a business fails. They knew what was going to happen and will now make a s---load on selling the brand and recipes.
And the employees and surrounding communities will get screwed.
The bankruptcy was long in planning. Don't believe the BS from the CEO's PR firm.
