Minimum Wage

In this photo taken Monday, July 27, 2015, Arturo Ramirez, right reaches for plates stacked overhead as food is prepared at an Ivar’s restaurant in Seattle. After Seattle’s new minimum wage law took effect last April 1, Ivar’s Seafood Restaurants announced that it was jacking up its prices by about 21 percent, eliminating tipping as a routine procedure, and immediately paying all its hourly workers a $15 per hour. They began the new pay rate three years earlier than the law required. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
