Our next meeting will be devoted to the issue of a $15/hour minimum wage, and how it affects Cap Hill. We will have people from varying sides of this issue to present and answer questions: a representative from Councilmember Sawants office, representatives from local business, from SEICU, and hopefully more.
This is an important topic, and we want your voice to be heard.
