On a side note, it'll be interesting to see what happens with contract security positions (and security companies) in Seattle with the minimum wage going to $15. My guess is that it won't be good.
The thing is, you can't just look at the $15 as the "cost" to business, because obviously it has a proportional impact on what's paid for overtime, it will be necessary to increase the supervisors' wages proportionately, and it will cost the company proportionately more in other payroll costs such as the company's share of the employee's SS contribution.
But it doesn't stop there. Clients will also be paying out more in labor costs in just the same way, and I'm reasonably sure that will probably mean they will have less to spend on contract services of all kinds, not just security. This translates to the security service being squeezed from both sides.
