San Jose, CA recent minimum wage increase not all it’s cracked up to be

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.
