Thank you, Martina, for sharing your story and fighting for the dignity that all workers deserve.

Ugh. Check the grammar on that headline.

But won't paying her a higher wage make life extremely difficult for job creators like poor Andrew Friedman, who make the city's neighborhoods great by giving so much of themselves?

@3: It's okay, I heard from a credible source (more credible than the Seattle Times!) that they are thinking about going on strike: http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archive…

@4 Oh please oh please oh please. Let the thieving bastards close their doors for a day. Let them teach themselves a nice hard lesson.

It won't make a difference. They can quit their jobs, go on strike, walk around with signs that demand a fair wage, but the consumer is the key. People will still go to McD's for their grease fix and uneducated people will still need jobs. No education, no $.
