My awareness of a campaign for a $15-an-hour minimum wage was followed by disbelief. The residents of Seattle managed to elect an out and proud socialist, but could our fair city make such a giant leap in socialist policies? It would take time, but I was determined to document it with my camera.
I knew a big leap in pay would make a difference in the lives of those it would affect, but was curious as to how it would be implemented. I expected resistance from the business community but found more support than I expected.
