A proposal to raise the wages of workers in and around Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has drawn national attention — and big cash is starting to follow.
There are just 11,852 registered voters in the city of SeaTac eligible to vote Nov. 5 on an initiative setting a $15-an-hour minimum wage for thousands of airport, hotel, car-rental and other employees. (The state’s minimum wage is $9.19 an hour.)
Supporters and opponents of the measure already have raised $440,000 combined for the looming battle — about $37 per voter.
