Seattle approves a $15 minimum wage, highest in nation
The Seattle City Council Monday approved a $15 minimum wage, creating a path over the next 7 years to provide the city’s lowest-paid workers the nation’s highest minimum wage.

Fast-food workers, union organizers and labor activists celebrated on the steps of City Hall after the historic vote with cake and ice cream provided by some local small businesses who joined in support of a plan that will phase-in the $15 minimum over the next seven years.
