Next-to-last ΒΆ:
Fugere added that paid sick leave costs "less than one half of one percent of my revenue. There's no question that the costs outweigh the benefits."

@8:

If SB doesn't answer, it means they've probably had to make an emergency trip to that Italian villa in order to escape the Socialist Hellhole that Seattle has now become.

@12 Either that, or he and his wife are seeing an LMFT because gay marriage is destroying his marriage.

Does thee Washington Restaurant Association ever tire of being wrong? Do their members ever notice they pay dues to an organization that lobbies under false assumptions AND sucks at getting these socialist utopia bills defeated?

Tie the minimum wage to inflation? We'll all go out of business.

no Smoking? We'll all go out of business.

no styrofoam? We'll all go out of business.
