SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is proposing a phase-in of an increase in the city's minimum wage to $15 an hour over the next seven years.
Businesses with greater than 500 employees nationally will have at least three years to phase in the increase.
Smaller organizations will have seven years, with the new wage including a consideration for tips and health care costs over the first five years.
Once the $15 wage is reached, future increases will be tied to the consumer price index.
The plan now goes to the City Council for discussion.
Washington state already has the nation's highest minimum wage at $9.32 an hour. Murray made raising the minimum wage a campaign promise last year.

Love to see the look on: their faces when local prices jump about two weeks after the wage hike.

Businesses with greater than 500 employees nationally will have at least three years to phase in the increase or move to a more business friendly part of the Country like Texas.

By 2025, minimum wage in Washington will be $36k a year?
Good luck with that.

Looks like TX is going to get some more businesses moving in.Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

Nevada needs jobs and there is no state income tax.
