This digital web archive documents the stories of those involved with the historic SeaTac and Seattle minimum wage campaigns of 2013-2014 (also called the 15 Now movement). Audio and video oral history interviews and transcriptions, photographs, archived websites, and digitized documents show the struggle of coalitions of workers, union officers and members, nonprofits, and faith organizations to win the new minimum wage and other important protections. The stories of others involved in the campaigns including politicians, business people, and opponents are included here as well.
