$15 An Hour for SeaTac – On the Ballot!

SEATAC, Wash. – A fight to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour in this King County city has taken a major step forward.

On Tuesday night, the SeaTac City Council unanimously voted to place the so-called Good Jobs Initiative up for a public vote, which would bring the new minimum wage to more than $30,000 a year.

The pay raise, if approved by city voters in November, would apply to many hospitality and transportation workers in the city that is home to Sea-Tac International Airport.
