ONLINE: Nonprofits and the Minimum Wage - What have we learned?

Cvent WN Free Monthly Webinars Banner

Are Seattle nonprofits relocating to other places because of increases in the minimum wage? Are increases boosting morale? How are nonprofits planning to pay for the increases? Professor Scott W. Allard, the lead author of the Report on the Nonprofit Response to the Minimum Wage, will answer these questions and more in this one hour webinar. Although the report focuses on Seattle nonprofits, with statewide increases rolling out between now and 2020, there’s lots to learn regardless of which part of the state you call home!

Although each part of the state is unique, there’s lots to learn from what’s happening in Seattle! Read the full report to learn more.
