Topic A: Supporters and opponents of the “One Fair Wage” Initiative 77 to raise the tipped wage in DC packed Monday’s marathon hearing at DC City Council but Washington Post columnist Theresa Vargas cut through the pro and con arguments with her column in today’s Post entitled ‘Chocolate City’ is now ‘Money City’: The high price D.C. is paying to overturn the public’s will. As Theresa so eloquently put it: “Whether you agree or disagree with the wage measure — or don’t care one way or another about it — you should be concerned that the hearing has further split an already divided city and confirmed for some what they already suspected: Some residents’ voices matter more than others.”
