Yes for SeaTac

Services: Digital Strategy | Web Development |

Yes for SeaTac was the citywide ballot initiative (Prop-1) to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour for all workers in the city of SeaTac, WA.

Coined the “Good Jobs Initiative,” Prop 1 required employers to give their workers paid sick leave, ensured tip fairness, and boosted the economy by raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour. It only applied to large companies, which protected small businesses and hotels.

Prop 1 helped more than 6,000 people who live, work and/or shop in SeaTac, including jet fuelers, hotel housekeepers, baggage handlers, rental car employees, and many more. It gave them and their families will more money in their pockets to spend on groceries, rent, gas, clothing and other necessities, boosting the local economy by an estimated $54 million every year.

Yes for SeaTac was primarily coordinated and funded by a coalition of labor unions and was dedicated to bringing a living wage to the community of SeaTac.
