Establishing a Minimum Wage in Burien: Next Steps

At the July 24, 2023 Burien City Council meeting, the Burien City Council directed staff to conduct a study on minimum wage ordinances adopted by other cities and bring back a recommendation for a councilmanic process to establish a minimum wage in Burien.

City staff presented information to the City Council for discussion on October 23, 2023. While this compressed timeline will not allow for comprehensive community engagement on the subject prior to bringing it back to the City Council, staff will conduct targeted stakeholder interviews with business and labor, engage in discussions with the Business and Economic Development Partnership advisory board, and then present research and information at the City Council October 23, 2023 meeting on next steps in establishing a local minimum wage.

Community members are invited to provide feedback or comment on establishing a local minimum wage in Burien.
