US Supreme Court rejects franchise industry challenge to Seattle's $15 minimum wage law

 Working Washington released a statement regarding today's move by the US Supreme Court to reject the International Franchise Association's appeal of Seattle's $15 minimum wage law:

"The poverty wage fast food industry's worst fear is coming true — Seattle's $15 wage law is working & the economy is thriving. The big business lobby has thrown everything they got at Seattle workers — but they keep on losing, and the economy continues to boom. Today's ruling is another another win for workers & people of Seattle and another defeat for McDonald’s & friends."
