Businesses bow to pressure and a politician softens her stance on businesses

Originally aired: Monday, March 17, 2014

Guinness and others have withdrawn support for St. Patrick's Day parades in Boston and New York City over pressure related to one LGBTQ group in the march not being allowed to have those letters on their banner. Jason breaks down why businesses shouldn't have caved to the pressure. // Jason is ecstatic that his favorite Seahawk, Steven Hauschka, re-signed with the team. Now he can finally get a Hawks jersey. // LongForm: Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant gave a different message than usual at Saturday's 15 Now event. Sawant said she is open to phasing in the $15 minimum wage for small businesses. Jason digs into why that's a nice thing to say, but really hard thing to carry out. Local business owners say a $15 minimum wage would hurt if it happened suddenly. // Jason shares the latest with the Malaysian plane that is still missing and explains why we haven't been covering it that much.
