An effort by some businesses to repeal a $15 hourly minimum wage in Seattle appears to have fallen short of the required signatures to place the question on the November ballot.
According to the Puget Sound Business Journal, supporters of the $15 minimum were delighted to hear that opponents, who call themselves Forward Seattle, failed in their effort to repeal the ordinance.
It was passed unanimously by the Seattle city council and signed by the mayor. The $15 hourly minimum will be phased-in starting in January.
