Workers in Seattle won't notice a difference, but in Yakima County? Low-wage workers can expect a big raise.

Voters have approved a hike to the state’s minimum wage to $13.50 an hour by 2020.

But that increase means something different depending where you live in the state.

In Seattle, for example, the minimum wage is set to rise to $15 an hour for all workers by 2021 — and in King County as a whole, only 7.8 percent of jobs pay below $13.50. But in Yakima County, 30.5 percent of low-wage jobs will get a boost from the new increase.
