Apparently, the legal action to block Seattle's $15 minimum wage from going into full effect is so unpopular and embarrassing that even extreme right-wing group ALEC is now trying to pretend they had nothing to do with it:
ALEC, the corporate lobbying group notorious for ultra-right-wing legislation attacking everything from gun control to the right to vote, wants to deny their involvement with this recent lawsuit. But leaks from ALEC's most recent closed-door meeting, reported in the Guardian, prove something different:
At that meeting, ALEC members discussed multiple strategies to block workers from getting the raises they fought for, including these lawsuits. In public, they claim "no involvement." So wait, if even ALEC feels tainted by a connection to the franchise lobby's lawsuit, is there anyone left who publicly supports something that unpopular?
Oh, right... The Seattle Times editorial board. Bold move, Seattle Times.
