Seattle City Council Moves Forward with $15 Minimum Wage Proposal

Evening News
program date: 
Fri, 05/30/2014
On Thursday, the Seattle City Council moved forward with a proposal to increase the city's minimum wage to $15 per hour. However, the proposal is not that simple and hasn't pleased all proponents of a wage increase. KBOO's Sam Bouman spoke with Nicholas Caleb, a Concordia University professor and former candidate for Portland City Council in last week's primary election about the ins and outs of Seattle's proposal and continuing efforts to raise the minimum wage in Oregon.

Seattle City Council to Vote on Minimum Wage Proposal

Thu, 05/29/2014
This morning the Seattle City Council’s Committee on Minimum Wage and Income Inequality approved an ordinance that would increase Seattle’s minimum wage to fifteen dollars.
The ordinance will go before the full council next week.
The committee declined to speed up the slow phase-in of the ordinance, which gives most businesses three or more years to raise their wages.
The ordinance includes a number of contentious amendments, including a sub-minimum wage for teenagers and health-care credits for businesses that provide insurance.
The energy surrounding the push for a higher minimum wage in Seattle stems largely from grassroots organizing and the election of Socialist candidate Kshama Sawant to the Council on a platform that prominently included a fifteen-dollar minimum wage.
Nicholas Caleb, a Columbia University professor, ran unsuccessfully for Portland City Council on a similar platform in last week’s primary election.
Caleb spoke with KBOO’s Sam Bouman this afternoon about Seattle’s proposed ordinance and the ongoing push for a wage increase in Portland.

The Obama administration today released an update on its so-called “all-of-the-above” energy strategy.
The report advocates increased domestic oil and gas production, citing the nation’s economic growth and national security.
It endorses only a token increase in renewable energy production.
This report comes days before the president is expected to announce new greenhouse gas regulations for existing power plants.
Friends of the Earth President Erich Pica spoke with KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg about today’s announcement:

Portland City Council Approves G-4-S Contract

The Portland City Council today approved a contract for private security officers in City Hall, the Portland Building, Union Station and several other city-owned buildings.
The contract was awarded to the controversial security firm G-4-S, but no objections were raised by any members of the public or city council members.
 
The measure passed the city council without objection, despite the call by human rights groups to boycott G-4-S because of their involvement in the Israeli military occupation of Palestinian land.
G4S supplies security equipment and services for use at Israeli prisons, checkpoints and settlements in the West Bank.
It also helps to maintain Israel's prison system, providing security for major Israeli prisons.
Hundreds of Palestinians held in these prisons recently went on hunger strike to protest conditions, and the fact that many are being held without charges, often for years on end.

Tue, 05/27/2014
The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund has released a new report based on thousands of newly-release government documents exposing a widespread spying effort on the Occupy Wall street protests nationwide by Fusion centers used to coordinate national and local law enforcement agencies.
The new documents roll back the curtain on the Fusion Centers and show the communications, interactions and emails of a massive national web of federal agents, officials, police, and private “security” contractors.
These officers accumulated and shared information reporting on all manner of peaceful and lawful political activity that took place during the Occupy movement, from protests and rallies to meetings and educational lectures.
This enormous spying and monitoring apparatus included the Pentagon, FBI, DHS, police departments and chiefs, private contractors and commercial business interests.
For more, KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg spoke with Carl Messineo, the Legal Director for the Partnership for civil justice fund:
