Seizing on the momentum of the landmark for the $15 minimum wage in SeaTac, fast food workers and community supporters will mount a day-long, 8-hour march on Thursday, Dec. 5 that traces the $15 movement’s path from its first big victory in SeaTac to its next destination — Seattle City Hall. The event is happening the same day that fast-food strikes are anticipated in about 100 cities across the nation.
Poverty-wage workers who work in fast food, at the airport, and in other industries will be joined by faith leaders and other community supporters. They will depart from the SeaTac Hilton (where workers will be paid a minimum of $15 an hour next year), 17620 International Blvd, at 9 a.m. on Thursday. Their route will take them from International Blvd. to Boeing Access Road to Martin Luther King, Jr. Way to Rainier Ave to Jackson to 4th. At 4 p.m., all-day marchers will be joined by additional supporters at Hing Hay Park, 423 Maynard Ave. S. in Seattle for final stretch before arriving at City Hall, 600 4th Ave., at 4:30 p.m. for a rally for $15.
