[09/05/17]   We want to call your attention to an issue we have addressed recently which has drawn attention in the press. Earlier this year the City of Seattle began discussing a revision to a Seattle ordinance exception related to subminimum wage. In several of these news sources Northwest Center was cited as an employer who participates in the subminimum wage exemption.

We want you to know where we stand and to have the chance to review our position on our use of the subminimum wage certificate. You are welcome to reach out with feedback, questions, and thoughts on this situation.
