SeaTac minimum-wage proposal now leads by only 55 votes

The lead continued to narrow Friday for a ballot measure that would create a $15-an-hour minimum wage for airport-related workers in SeaTac.

Vote counts released by King County Elections show the measure leading by only 55 votes. It led by 141 votes after Thursday’s counts.

More results will be announced at about 8:30 p.m. today.

SeaTac Proposition 1 would raise the wage floor to $15 an hour and guarantee paid sick leave for roughly 6,300 hospitality and transportation workers.

The measure has led since Election Day on Tuesday, but the gap has narrowed with each vote count.

The latest results show 2,500 votes yes (50.56 percent) and 2,445 votes no (49.44).
