Fast Food Workers Win in Court; $15 Law Remains in Full Effect

Working Washington

WASHINGTON - Federal Judge Richard A. Jones has declined to issue an injunction against Seattle’s $15 minimum wage law, ruling against the claim by industry lawyers that Seattle’s popular law is unfair to McDonald’s, Subway, and other giant franchise systems.

“I haven’t read a single page of a law book,” said Malcolm Cooper-Suggs, a leader with Working Washington who works at the downtown Seattle McDonald’s, “but I know what’s right and what’s wrong. This is the right ruling.”
