Despite what Seattle City Council members (and former mayors like Ed Murray) might try to tell you, there's no such thing as a free lunch. Seattle's $15 minimum wage is driving up customer costs, according to this SODO Subway Shop owner's sign. (photo: Washington Policy Center). 

A Subway Sandwich shop in Seattle's SODO neighborhood posts a sign for customers notifying them that they cannot offer lower prices on their food due to city laws that drive up the cost of doing business, specifically the city's current minimum wage of $15 per hour for companies with more than 500 employees.

Washington Policy Center's Government Reform Director, Jason Mercier, posted this summary about how the Subway shop in question is handling this situation.
