North Coast Hot Jobs June 16

Hello job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, http://www.scribd.com/doc/229763224/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-June-16-2014

So here are some more thoughts on the phased in raising of the minimum wage in Seattle. It's possible this could have an effect on the cost of living. As a result of paying more for employees, products or services could cost more to compensate. This could create a mini-inflation of sorts in that area. This could encourage consumers to shop elsewhere outside of the Seattle area to get less expensive product or services.

Another effect could be realized by some individuals that currently make a couple of dollars or so over the minimum wage. For example, if someone currently makes $12 or $13 per hour, which is over the current minimum wage of $9.32/hr. then they could argue that they should be continue to get a couple of dollars or so over the minimum wage. As a result, someone who makes $12 currently, could demand that they receive $17 in the future. This could have a domino effect on other wage levels as well.

Washington state has four new jobs in the area and the federal government has added two this week. The hospital in Port Angeles has added six jobs. Out west the Quileute tribe as posted at least 19 jobs in 7 categories.

That's all for now. Have a good one.
