34th Dist. Dems will take on $15 wage question at June meeting

The 34th District Democrats will take on the $15 minimum wage issue on June 11 at their monthly meeting.

City Councilmember Kshama Sawant and Sage Wilson of Working Washington will be present to make the case for the law which was recently passed by the Seattle City Council. The Dems say there still might be an initiative on the fall ballot.

Also scheduled to appear is King County Councilmember Dave Upthegrove, who will provide a quick update from the County. Also on the agenda, the group will consider an endorsement of I-594 (gun responsibility / background checks) and consider a resolution on Social Security Vision 2025.
