BREAKING: Airport workers & 15Now supporters will hold a major demonstration TODAY in support of the true $15 wage that SeaTac voters passed & the Port of Seattle is trying to water down. The protest will take place AT SEA-TAC AIRPORT before the Port of Seattle meeting there. 12:45 TODAY Serious demonstration by airport workers & 15Now at Sea-Tac Airport SeaTac Airport, International Arrival Hall Near Baggage Claim 1
At their meeting today at 1 pm on the 2nd floor of Sea-Tac Airport, Port Commissioners are expected to released a watered down wage policy that falls well short of the true $15/hour that airport workers & supporters are calling for and that SeaTac voters passed in November.
Due to the Port's opposition to $15 in SeaTac — including joining a lawsuit with Alaska Airlines and other big corporations to overturn it — 4,700 airport workers have lost more than $15 million in wages over the last 6 months.
Working Washington unites low-wage workers to fight for a fair economy where everyone can support themselves, afford the basics, and contribute to the economy. We launched the fast food strikes that sparked the fight for $15 in Seattle; we helped lead the successful campaign to pass $15 in SeaTac; and we work in coalition with unions, faith groups, and grassroots organizations to hold corporations & politicians accountable to community needs.
