Minimum wage and unions in Washington and beyond
Column was misleading
To say that today, “more American workers are excluded from the legal right to form a union than currently have union representation,” as David Rolf stated in his column with Nick Hanauer, is totally misleading. [“Guest column: Seattle leads the chorus for a living wage,” Opinion, Aug. 11.]
The right of any citizen to join or associate with any group such as a union is in our Constitution by the First Amendment.
His interest in raising the minimum wage may be influenced by his position as a union president. Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour could double the dues income to his local.
