Election

View From the Hotel Lobby

I had a chance to chat with an employee madly tidying up the Marriott lobby in the wake of the Republican Party election night gathering. He told me his roommate participated in the campaign to get the minimum wage ordinance passed.

"I was totally for it," he said. "I think a lot of the people I work with didn't even know about it, but I'm really glad it passed. I think it could help a lot, and I like that it goes up with the cost of living."

He nodded toward the crowd filtering out of the ballroom.

"I've been waiting to see some tearseven just one. And I finally did," he said, grinning. "I feel much better now."
