Seattle minimum wage to increase January 2020

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.

The new minimum wage in 2020 will be as follows:

Large employers: $16.39 per hour.

Small employers: $15.75 per hour or $13.50 per hour if they pay at least $2.25 per hour toward the employee’s medical benefits or the employee earns at least $2.25 per hour in tips.

Statewide, Washington's minimum wage increased to $12 per hour in 2019, up from $11.50 in 2018. The state minimum wage will rise again to $13.50 per hour in 2020, as part of Initiative 1433.
