Washington State Supreme Court upholds SeaTac’s $15/hour minimum wage measure

Statement by SEIU 775 President David Rolf on the Washington State Supreme Court’s decision today to uphold the $15/hour minimum wage measure passed by SeaTac voters in November 2013:

“With today’s Supreme Court ruling, thousands of low-wage airport workers will finally be lifted out of poverty thanks to the implementation of a $15 minimum wage. We hope this sends a strong message to the Port of Seattle, which too often acts as an agent for its wealthy Port businesses like Alaska, and not in the interests of workers and the taxpayers who support it.”
