The Good Jobs Seattle group, which seeks a $15-an-hour minimum wage for fast-food workers, is staging an eight-hour march Thursday from the Hilton Seattle Airport & Conference Center to Seattle’s City Hall.
The 14-mile march begins at 9 a.m. at 17620 International Blvd. in SeaTac.
Participants better dress warm.
The National Weather Service says that although it will be partly sunny, a high temperature of only 35 degrees is expected.
The route will go from International Boulevard to the Boeing Access Road, then onto Martin Luther King Jr. Way South, Rainier Avenue South and South Jackson Street, and will end at City Hall, 600 Fourth Ave.
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) says it expects about 100 people and that Seattle police will escort the group in Seattle, using the right-curb lane most of the way. SDOT suggests drivers plan for possible delays. Tukwila police say they will provide traffic control and assist the marchers in that city.
At about 1 p.m., the marchers will pause for lunch at Brighton Field, 6000 39th Ave. S.
The group plans to have a rally at City Hall at 4:30 p.m.
