The minimum wage will increase for Seattle employees on Jan. 1, 2020.
In 2019, large employers with 501 or more employees paid a minimum wage of $16 per hour and small employers of 500 or fewer employees paid a minimum wage of $15 per hour.
If small employers paid at least $3 per hour towards the employee’s medical benefits and/or the employee earned at least $3 per hour in tips, the minimum wage was $12 per hour. Large employers followed this two-tiered system in the past but stopped in 2019.
