No Bridges Floating In Fort Worth With A $15 Minimum Wage
Propagandizing right wing nut job types have claimed that the Seattle minimum wage hike has wreaked all sorts of havoc, of the businesses closing sort.
Most of those propagandizing such shut up about it when it is pointed out that the Seattle minimum wage is not yet at $15, that the increase is being phased in slowly, not reaching $15 til 2021 and no business has gone out of business due to the wage hike.
Also in the Seattle Times this morning was the news that the new 520 floating bridge is set to open this weekend with a big party.
In Fort Worth there are three simple little bridges being slowly built over dry land with a four year construction timeline.
I am almost 100% certain that no son of a Seattle congress person had anything to do with the floating of this big bridge.
I am also almost 100% certain that I will never see, in person, the Trinity River Uptown Central City Panther Island Vision bridges completed.
How are crews removing the old floating bridge, I can't help but wonder? Is the bridge going to be sunk? It would not be the first time a Washington floating bridge has drowned.
It would be the third time.
