What do you think about a $13.50 statewide minimum wage?

A coalition of labor unions, community groups, and other organizations called Raise Up Washington has filed an initiative which would raise the statewide minimum wage to $13.50 over 4 years, and ensure all workers have access to paid sick & safe time. The minimum wage would adjust with inflation every year after it reaches $13.50/hr. The higher wages in SeaTac and Seattle will remain in effect, and other cities will still be able to raise their local minimum wages above the statewide standard if they so choose.
