Would MLK Jr. support today’s push for $15 hour minimum wage?
FILE - In this Aug. 28, 1963 file photo, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, addresses marchers during his "I Have a Dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. The Martin Luther King Jr. birthday holiday is celebrated this year on Monday, Jan. 16, 2012, although the the actual anniversary of his birthday is Jan. 15. The Georgia native, who was born in Atlanta, would have been 83 years old. On Monday, a wreath will be laid at the new King Memorial on the National Mall, in Washington, which opened in August. Since then, the King Memorial Foundation says more than 2 million visitors from around the world have visited the memorial. (AP Photo, File)

 Scores of marchers will hit Seattle streets today on Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day to rally support for the $15 an hour minimum wage proposal. John Carlson says the rally for a $15 an hour minimum wage is ironic because Rev. King likely wouldn’t support the steep wage increase because of its adverse impact on employment rates in the African-American community.
