Working Washington reports:
People said demanding $15 an hour was unrealistic. They said it couldnâ€™t be done. But this yearâ€™s elections proved them wrong. Itâ€™s official: SeaTac voted to pass the Good Jobs Initiative!
Raising pay to $15/hour is the right thing to do. It also make economic sense. When workers get a raise, they put that money right back into the economy, kickstarting a cycle of prosperity that benefits everyone.
We will be starting at the Hilton Seattle Airport Hotel on 17620 International Blvd, SeaTac at 8:30am. We are breaking for lunch at Brighton Playfield on 6000 39th Ave S at 1:00pm.
For folks who canâ€™t march all day we will gather at Hing Hay Park on 423 Maynard Ave at 4:00 then march to our culminating rally at Seattle City Hall.
We know big corporations arenâ€™t just going to raise wages on their own, so workers, community members, and elected officials need to keep them in line to make sure they do the right thing.
Letâ€™s get this done.
Nathan, Working Washington
