$15 Wage Initiative Is Poised For Victory

SEATTLE (AP) - A campaign to set a $15 minimum wage in SeaTac is poised for victory.
    
King County officials will certify the election Tuesday after counting some straggling ballots that likely won't influence the outcome. The minimum wage measure has expanded its lead steadily in recent days and held a 76-vote advantage on Monday morning.
    
Gary Smith is a spokesman for opposition group Common Sense SeaTac. He says the campaign hasn't made a formal decision about whether to seek a recount.
    
The proposal requires a $15 minimum wage for many workers in and around Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The campaign drew some $1.8 million in spending in the small city, with national labor groups supporting the effort and national business groups opposing it.
