Event Description:

However you can still attend by paying at the door.

In 2016, legislation passed in Oregon that will increase the state’s minimum wage over time. Three years ago, Seattle was one of the first jurisdictions in the nation to implement a path to a $15 minimum wage. Hear from an economist on the impact of Seattle’s minimum wage increase, as well as Oregon employers and legislators about how they are adapting to the new norm.
