Rising Tide Reaches Massachusetts – Surrounding States Must Act

The Massachusetts House of Representatives recently passed a bill that will raise the state’s minimum wage from $8 to $11 an hour by 2017—the highest state minimum wage in the nation. The Senate already approved the bill, and Governor Deval Patrick is expected to sign it into law within the week.

Regional Minimum Wage Proposed for East Bay

Minimum wage proposal for East Bay cities gathers momentum

Mayor Tom Bates’ proposal to create a regional minimum wage across the East Bay is generating interest among officials in various cities.

“We need to raise the minimum wage, and we need to do it quickly,” Asher said. “I’m absolutely interested in it. I’m just not sure what the details are going to look like.”

Berkeley City Councilmember Jesse Arreguin, who supports the minimum wage increase in the city and region, said although the increase from $8 to $12.53 is a “step forward,” it is not enough to support people working in jobs like retail and food service.

“Tackling minimum wage regionally will have the most impact and help the most people,” Arreguin said. “The increase is important, but what’s critical is that the raised minimum wage match the cost of living in the East Bay.”

Seattle’s $15 Minimum Wage Will Do What?

shortlink:

Via the Horses Ass:

http://horsesass.org/15-minimum-wage-blowback-seattle-hotels-sell-for-record-price/

Remember how opponents warned that a $15 minimum wage would surely cost the city thousands of jobs, hurting the exact same low-wage workers the ordinance was intended to help? Well, in Seattle’s booming hospitality industry, not so much:

The former Red Lion Hotel in downtown Seattle sold Thursday for $130.7 million, or nearly $410,000 a room, the highest price ever paid in the metro area, according to hotel experts.

But the record price for the 319-room hotel, now known as Motif Seattle, could quickly be surpassed by the pending sale of the 120-room Hotel 1000: Two groups are buying it for $63 million or about $525,000 a room, according to a report this week in The Wall Street Journal, which didn’t identify its sources.

“It is the highest price paid (per key) ever for a hotel in Washington state,” said Chris Burdett, senior vice president of CBRE Hotels in Seattle, which was not involved in the transaction.
