$15-An-Hour Living Wage: Even The Kochs Might Not Stop It

Posted by Phoenix Woman on October 23, 2013

From Salon via Daily Kos:

Voters in SeaTac – a city surrounding and including the Seattle-Tacoma airport – will decide the proposal’s fate on November 5. If approved, the new law would require a wage of at least $15 for over 6,000 workers employed at the airport and surrounding hotels. Smaller airport employers and most SeaTac companies outside the airport and hotels would be exempted.

Wish them luck — the Kochs are bankrolling a campaign to stop them, though it looks like that might fail.
