Free Speech For People filed an amicus brief in defense of Seattle's new "living wage" law, now under fire from the International Franchise Association, the National Restaurant Association, and other industry trade
groups. Seattle's living wage law should be upheld against industry claims it violates alleged rights of corporations under the U.S. Constitution. The amicus brief is available here.
We are calling on McDonald's and other big franchise corporations to drop their lawsuit against Seattle’s living wage law and stop claiming protection under the Fourteenth Amendment—a right reserved for people, not corporations.
