Councilmember Sawant’s Statement on Movement to Expand $15 Minimum Wage to Bellevue and the Rest of Washington State

SEATTLECity Councilmember Kshama Sawant issued the following statement regarding today’s rally to bring a $15 minimum wage to the rest of Washington State:

“I stand in solidarity with Seattle’s fast food workers and other workers who will participate in the tremendous actions taking place today. These events come on the heels of the historic victory of $15/hour in Seattle, and the nationwidE walkouts and strikes of last week. This is an action to demand $15/hour statewide and a protest against the despicable attempts by Tim Eyman and the International Franchise Association to overturn 15 in Seattle. Workers should stand together and fight big business, and I congratulate the workers on their courage and determination.”
