Seattle’s a pretty Liberal town and today’s passage of a $15/Hour minimum marks a real win for low-wage workers, especially coming as it is on 1 May and ‘International Worker’s Day’.

    It couldn’t have been a better day to hear the news. It looks like this form of progress will be stuck at the state and local level for a while. The good news is that this will generate oceans of additional comparative data to clarify the real impact of artificially raising social minima. The bad news is that an entire wing of our politics will have no use for data, continuing to peddle their toxic mix of tycoon-worship and minority scapegoating. Still, the trend is favorable, and one hopes, inevitable.

    I support a sort of a ‘weak’ version of Socialism, as opposed to the armed rebellion of Communism, which failed so badly in the erstwhile USSR and elsewhere.
