Houser, E., Thomas, C., & Page, S. ( 2013). $15 Now?! Combat and Collaboration in Seattle’s Historic Minimum Wage Debate. Seattle, WA: Evans School of Public Policy & Governance, University of Washington.

Mayor Murray needed to balance the goals of each interest group on his committee to salvage a deal on the minimum wage.
