Effective January 1, 2023, the minimum wage in Sea-Tac will be the highest in the nation. Passenger service workers will see the minimum wage increase to $19.06, a 8.66% increase from one year prior.
Wages for certain workers in Sea-Tac are determined by Proposition 1, which SEIU6 members fought for and won together with a multiracial, multi-faith coalition in 2013.
Each year, the minimum wage increase is calculated based on the US Department of Labor’s consumer price index.
Sea-Tac airport workers led the way with the first $15/hour minimum wage in the nation. In connecting with coworkers, building a coalition with labor and community allies, and getting out the vote for Proposition 1, Sea-Tac workers built a foundation for collective action that continues to benefit our airport community.
