Seattle Mayor Ed Murray and his Income Inequaltiy Committee have not yet reached an agreement in raising the minimum wage.
Murray was expected to announce an initial proposal for the City Council at a press conference Thursday afternoon, but said that though the committee had reached an agreement in principle, there was not yet a viable proposal.
David Hyde talks with investigative reporter and author David Cay Johnston about his new book, "Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality." The book comprises a collection of essays on the growing wealth gap and how economies grow while citizens get poorer.
Residents of Seattle should know in the next few months whether low-wage workers in the city will get a raise. Mayor Ed Murray is hoping to unveil a proposal by late spring that would increase the minimum wage in the city to as much as $15 an hour.
