Seatac To Vote On $15 Minimum Wage

(CBS Seattle) — Minimum wage workers in SeaTac are a step closer to receiving $15 per hour should the city council approve to put the measure on the November ballot.

KOMO reports it would apply to many hospitality and restaurant workers at Sea-Tac Airport.

If approved, the minimum wage would rise to more than $30,000 a year.

While the wage increase would benefit struggling, full-time airport workers, both Alaska Airlines and the Washington Restaurant Association argue the move would cripple their operations.

The state of Washington has one of the highest minimum wages in the nation at $9.19 an hour.
