APTOPIX Minimum Wage
In this Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013 photo, wheelchair attendants Erick Conley, left, and Sesilia Vaitele assist a pair of passengers heading to an overseas flight at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, in SeaTac, Wash. There's a campaign underway to raise the minimum wage to $15 for the more than 6,300 jobs at Seattle's largest airport. If approved by voters on Nov. 5, the wage rate, as well as sick days and other benefits, would only apply to the city of SeaTac. The vote is one of the latest flashpoints in the national debate over the minimum wage after fast food workers and others held a series of summertime rallies to bring attention to their struggle to earn a living.
