SeaTac minimum-wage measure leads by 46 votes

By The Associated Press

A ballot measure that seeks to establish a $15-an-hour minimum wage for many workers in SeaTac is leading by 46 votes.

After Saturday’s ballot drop, Proposition 1 was passing with 2,936 “yes” votes compared to 2,890 “no” votes.

On election night, it was leading by a 261-vote margin — a decent gap in a race that’s likely to draw maybe 6,000 total votes.

Washington has the nation’s highest state minimum wage at $9.19 an hour; the federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour.
