3 questions on minimum wage for International Franchise Association spokesman
from Puget Sound Business Journal
Seattle City Council members, acting as a minimum wage committee, voted to send Mayor Ed Murray's plan to a full council vote.

Businesses with less than 500 employees would have seven years to work up to $15 an hour. Large businesses — and franchises, regardless of employee count — would have three.

Here's what people should know about franchises.
