The Minimum Wage History Project documents the historic and nationally recognized campaigns that in 2013-14 succeeded in mandating a $15 minimum wage in SeaTac and Seattle. The project will culminate in an on-line resource for students, faculty, and the general public who seek to understand how the campaigns achieved victory.

  • KSHAMA SAWANT, Seattle City Council
  • JAMES GREGORY, Professor of History, University of Washington
  • SARAH CHERIN, Political Director, UFCW 21
  • HEATHER WEINER, YES! for Sea-Tac Campaign

The mission of the Labor Archives of Washington at the University of Washington is to preserve and make accessible the history of work, workers, and their organizations. Founded in 2010, the Labor Archives is made possible by the contributions of dozens of unions and hundreds of individuals.

This event is free and open to the public. Free parking is available and a reception with drinks and refreshments will follow the program.
