What I Would Have Said to the Seattle City Council About a $15 Minimum Wage

Last night, the Seattle City Council held a town hall meeting at Rainier Beach High School to allow concerned citizens and business owners to express their views on the Mayor's $15 minimum wage plan. Hundreds turned out to give express their views in two minutes or less. Unfortunately, as #141 on the speaker list, I did not get to speak before the end of the meeting at 9:30pm. The following is what I would have said to the City Council if given the chance.
