Shapiro Debates Seattle's Openly Socialist City Councilwoman

"If you really care about small businesses, then join me in the fight to raise minimum wage."

Capitalism and socialism clashed in full force when TruthRevolt Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro debated Seattle's openly socialist city councilwoman Kshama Sawant on raising the city's minimum wage to $15 an hour. Rebecca Smith, Deputy Director of the National Employment Law Panel, aided Kshama Sawant; Paul Guppy, Vice President of the right-leaning Washington Policy Center, aided Ben Shapiro. Conservative talk show host David Boze served as moderator.

Sponsored by Seattle's conservative radio station KTTH, the debate covered a range of topics concerning the minimum wage debate from how small businesses will be affected to whether or not the CEO of Wal-Mart should be paid $20 million a year. As the debate opened, Boze made it perfectly clear that all parties involved in the discussion wanted people to make a decent wage, but differed in approach.
