We've added a new Advocacy page to the Chamber website to keep members informed on the latest developments in the minimum wage conversation. Check this page and/or our Chamber Blog regularly for new info and events. We will be setting the date soon for another Minimum Wage chat with Michael. It will be in early April and for members only. 

Upcoming Select Committee on Minimum Wage and Income Inequality Meetings

Council Chambers 

April 12th Minimum Wage Committee Town Hall

May 13th Committee Meeting

6 p.m. at Rainier Beach High School 
8815 Seward Park Avenue South, Seattle

In a press release from Matt Landers (Policy Development & Communications Manager of the Greater Seattle Business Association), he reports:
"After several meetings with City Councilmembers and participants in the Mayor's committee, I can report that the neighborhood survey has been incredibly well received. The voices of our small businesses have been very important in the debate thus far, and I think we can take credit for making some people start to think about the issue in a different light." See release here. 
We'll be keeping businesses informed on what they can do at the moment to be part of the conversation with the city on the minimum wage issue. As the process continues to the final days in June, these tips will change. Check our Chamber blog to keep updated between newsletters.
