About 150 people passed through the International District on Dec. 5 during a march from SeaTac to Seattle City Hall in support ofa $15/hour minimum wage. The march, organized by Working Washington, Good Jobs Seattle and others, was joined by newly elected Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant, who has been at the forefront of the fight to increase the minimum wage. On Tuesday (Dec. 10), a recount of the votes for SeaTac’s Proposition 1 to raise the minimum wage of certain hospitality and transportation employees to $15 resulted in no change. The proposition was passed by 77 votes. (end)
