Is a high forced minimum wage "un-American?"

Mike West,  a 50-year resident of SeaTac, said he's never seen anything more controversial than the proposed $15 minimum wage for businesses in and around the Washington city's airport.

"It definitely seems very strange to us why a city would be telling the airline industry, the hotel industry, the parking lot and rental car industries how they should be paying their employees," he said. "It just seems un-American to me."
