At their July 24, 2023 meeting, the Burien City Council passed a motion “to direct the City Manager 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.”
The City Council did not ask staff to evaluate or recommend whether a minimum wage should or should not be adopted. Their direction specified only for staff to bring back options for a recommended process to implement a local minimum wage. Read on for ways you can get involved.
