WASHINGTON

The living wage for a single adult is $15.95 per hour. This reflects what is needed to meet basic needs and maintain some ability to deal with emergencies and plan ahead. The living wage for a single adult with two children is $31.04 per hour.

Washington’s minimum wage of $9.47 does not allow working families to make ends meet. The state’s minimum wage provides just 59 percent of a living wage for a single adult and less than one-third of the living wage for a single adult with two children.
