John Carlson delves into a new report that says most of Seattle’s non-profits would be hurt badly by the 68% increase in the minimum wage jumping up to $15 per hour. The Seattle non-profits provide food bank services, summer jobs for teens, day care for kids, senior services and shelters to the needy. All of that could be severely restricted with the $15 per hour minimum wage hike.
