8:15 pm
together their legislators and corporate representatives are crafted in voting on model legislation that's been done behind closed door meetings little bit later this afternoon. the senators task force's new media is allowed in. there's an education taskforce there's no wind energy task force the tax policy task force is physically organized a similar way that our congress is organized into committees not once legislation is passed out of these task forces to secure it with lawmakers back to their home states for the traffic passing through their respective state legislatures to become actual loss. so basically that's how it works it's this activity that threatens for christians who argue that this organization acts as a shadow government turning a corporatist legislation enforcing elected lawmakers to pledge allegiance to corporate interests rather than their own voters back home the members here say nothing nefarious is going on. i first came down like
8:16 pm
over a decade ago. when i was in the bush administration i've been privileged to work with alec. in the federal government i've been privileged to work with alec when i was back in texas the texas policy foundation leading the tenth amendment center. and i'm proud to stand without liked it. i will tell you this my advice to alec is very very simple stand your ground looking at the conservative vendors on hand and what's on the docket includes or task force meetings. you can clearly see an agenda emerging. alec has operated largely in the shadows but the organization did release some of its priorities for this year. they re did the sensible laws are being written in voted on at the summit. although alex still keep secret which corporate interests are being hired writing. each bottle bill. present. there's that this model bill under consideration this week opposing the case ability to regulate greenhouse gases under the clean air act
8:17 pm
the proposal was supported by deep deep oil industry. or there's this bill the international relations task force that opposes regulations requiring country of origin labeling on to the grocery stores. a proposal supported by the back. plus there are model bills to weaken sector unions as well as to make the affordable care act or obamacare more difficult to implement. these are all conservative priorities. but passing model bills the cubicle was on the road is only one priority this year for alec. the other is mending fences. as the guardian reported this week. alec is facing any foreigner is in crisis. after hundreds of lawmakers and dozens of corporations left the organization over controversy created by alex supporters to your brow was in voter id laws. it's reported that alec is facing a one point four million dollars budget hole that year it has launched a new initiative known as the prodigal son project to
8:18 pm
work corporations and their donations back into the organization. but there is little concern on the faces of members in the halls around here who dined together and play in a later vote together on corporate greed was emboldened by the dysfunction down the street congress alec is taking the responsibility of governing into their own hands. and that is exactly how corporate america wants it. in washington dc the same socks are too. ask the current number one hundred city is put down their snacks allies and picked up picket signs to date. julie protests for better wage its goal the protest is to raise the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour which would amount to thirty one thousand two hundred dollars for a full time employee before taxes. countdown is just about eight thousand dollars above the federal poverty line for a family of four at the moment right now the minimum wage in the country is seven twenty five an hour in some states
8:19 pm
that number is much higher here but so is the average cost of the twenty eight states that the highest minimum wages. they range from eight dollars an hour in california and massachusetts to nineteen nineteen in washington. the photo washington st international airport might be the testing grounds for the future of minimum wage. the city of sea tac is the first in the street sweeper of a fifteen dollar minimum wage for last month voters passed the ballot measure that would do that. airport workers a pay raise of more than double the current federal minimum pay and the ending of this next year. president obama is addressing the minimum wage in his speech yesterday other cities might need to begin to follow suit. you know that there are airport workers and fast food workers and nurse assistants and retail sales people who work their tails off. and i still
