In that report, a super majority of members recommended the City of Tacoma achieve a minimum hourly wage of at least $15 for everyone working in Tacoma by 2024, and that the City raise the minimum hourly wage for employees working for local, national, or global companies in Tacoma with 150 or more employees to $15 by 2020.
