Most making this wage work more than 40 hours and live with others who contribute to the household income.

Well, I’m thinking perhaps-- this has to do with new laws in the state.
In the next few months Washington will have an increase in tourism, crime, goods and services.
I know for a fact that I will visit there for vacation this summer a few days before my trip.
For example, Recreational Marijuana in Washington open for all this summer June or July?:
       
“SEATTLE — Drive down virtually any thoroughfare in Seattle and you are likely to pass several medical marijuana dispensaries. On Rainier Avenue, in southeast Seattle, the Northwest Cannabis Market sits between a fish store and an Italian bakery. A mile or so down the road, another dispensary occupies an old drive-in burger stand. There are about half as many medical marijuana dispensaries in Seattle — about 200 — as Starbucks locations.
But unlike in Colorado, where retail sales of marijuana for recreational uses began on New Year’s Day, a year after voters passed a ballot initiative legalizing the drug, Washington state regulators have taken months to craft new rules, and to comb through the thousands of applications for growing and retail licenses. More than 16 months after voters approved legalization, anyone hoping to score some dope in Seattle still has to have a medical prescription”
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/govbeat/wp/2014/04/08/retail-marijuana-sales-in-washington-face-regulatory-delays/

Things that make you go hmmmm….?

Would you be willing to pay $60 for something like a manicure or valet parking so they could be paid better and move out on their own?

The minimum wage here is about to be raised to $11, which means higher gas prices (but they already set that up---last week they reported that the price of oil is the highest it has been since 2011) and the price of food is about to skyrocket. 

Canada has tricked us immigrants into baking a pie with the promise of a dream, then they moved to the suburbs where they eat in private, and now they are closing the kitchen on us. The only immigrants who could get a piece of the pie are the ones from the East because they know the value of family and community. The black man has no place here...unless he too learns that a network is crucial for his survival.

Higher wages = higher pricers for consumers who never want to pay more for goods and services.

i agree...
