I was just at the bar in the SeaTac Airport the other day listening to the barkeep raving about her career as a bartender. Full benefits, vacation and sick days, pension (FFS!).

I literally worked my entire life from the ground up to earn what I have. Which, in hindsight, makes me feel like a fool when I learn where my $$ goes.

Lmao.

In a few months we will have another example for how retarded minimum wages are.

Whenever some dumbass calls for minimum wage hike we can just bring up SeaTac, Washington.

I had to take four college courses, graduate with a Bachelor's degree and teach full time to be qualified to teach Driver's Education in Texas. About 15 years ago, the State decided ''if you are a parent, then you can teach your own kid to drive...'

WTF?

How in the hell did knocking a girl up equate to the skills needed to teach a Driver's Education course of 40 hours classroom/lecture/rules and 30 hours in-car/behind-the-wheel?

So, yeah, I feel ya here.

Drivers ed is a huge waste. Parents should be doing it anyway. I never took it. Didn't need to. I drive fine. I fly jets too. Yup, initially my dad taught me that too.

Their wages will eventually work their way proportionally back to what they were. It just sucks that they'll have a prolapsed asshole from getting financially fucked until then.

It's the airport.

The only thing that's going to skyrocket is prices for everything associated with flying into and out of SEA.

Incorrect.

From the article:
Opponents of the $15 minimum wage did score a legal victory late last week when a King County, Wash., judge ruled that it does not apply to any of the workers at the SeaTac airport. Superior Court Judge Andrea Darvas ruled only the Port of Seattle can set wage and other work rules at the airport. That eliminates 4,700 workers from the successful ballot initiative.

Otherwise this would be very bad news... Now it will be a hilarious failure and a shining example of what not to do.

That makes the whole thing political theater.

SeaTac less SEA is almost nonexistent. The number of minimum wage jobs in the area is probably less than 10.

The 4700 airport workers that are exempted? 2/3 of them already make over $15/hour anyways.

What a joke.

Don't worry. It's not gonna hurt you anywhere near as much as it's gonna hurt him when they realize what kind of human resources they can get for that money. It's gonna be tough to get an entry level job when they're banned from competing on price. and there will be more than a few that will happily shed the responsibility and flip burgers for the same cash they made before.

So the secret strategy in this diabolical plan was that they were going to soak all the people passing through the airport? And that's why it was ok, since everyone else in SeaTac has a car and can drive three blocks out of their jurisdiction?

It's a classic union strategy: find some company with high fixed cost investments that are hard to relocate and shake them down. The hotels in SeaTac are hard to move over the course of a few years, so the owners are hard pressed.

Over a longer time horizon, well:

"Boeing Co will not build the wing for its new 777X jetliner in Washington state if members of its largest union reject its latest contract offer in a Friday vote, company executives told Seattle-area elected officials on Monday."

No one is offering a salaried position to someone they can't trust to show up every day, on time, and stay until the end of shift.

There are also fairly rigorous standards to define what can be exempt (salary) vs non-exempt (hourly) employees.

I know it's not realistic and self-punishing, but it would be so awesome in my fantasy world if the businesses impacted by this turned their businesses into blighted properties, cash into gold shops or used furniture stores.

More seriously, I did not realize that municipalities had the power to regulate minimum wage. I've always assumed that was only within the purview of the state or federal gov't.

In any case, I predict a fast food commodity-retail/service desert in Seatac.

Now it'll cost more to rent a room in SeaTac, and fewer rooms will be rented, and fewer tourists will stay in SeaTac, and spend money in SeaTac, and businesses won't be as profitable, and some business will let go of some employees, and the cost of this item will go up, and that item will go up, and fewer people will buy this and that from the other businesses, and those business will let people go, and on and on and on until maybe, someday, some soft headed liberal fuck will realize that the big rich business corporation doesn't have endless supply of cash laying around and that they actually need to remain competitively profitable in order keep them employed.

There's no way you could treat a burger flipper as independent contractor except for a food truck guy, maybe. Hotel employee? Maybe you could fire all of the cleaning staff, and hire a maid service.

There's no way you could treat a burger flipper as independent contractor except for a food truck guy, maybe. Hotel employee? Maybe you could fire all of the cleaning staff, and hire a maid service.
maybe not but you sure as hell could pay them based on production even without 1099 contract scenario.


Yes, as long as that production based pay met the hourly minimum wage requirements.

(BTW, I'm not arguing in favor of ridiculous minimum wage rates, or even minimum wage itself. I'm just talking about what would get you in a sling over it when the DOL gooberment thugs whip out the FLSA, or whatever the local equivalent is.)

Well.....I THOUGHT Washington would be a nice place to move out to and live.

I thought wrong. The liberal leeches are already entrenched.
I got to jack off the dog just feed the goddamn cat, yep.
