Julie is a single mother of two children living on a minimum wage salary in Lynnwood.
"I work at subway and I have two kids, and as a single mother and it’s very difficult for me. I live in Lynnwood and make the minimum wage and it’s very hard.
I’ve been working sick sometimes because we don’t have sick days paid and I felt like I had a small fracture in my big toe (right foot). After three weeks I went to the doctor and my foot was much worse so I now have to stop working and I'm off for two weeks with no pay.
I think we need more money in Lynnwood, too."
