Five Seattle franchisees and their trade association Wednesday filed a lawsuit to block the city’s new minimum-wage ordinance from taking effect in April.

The International Franchise Association argues that the $15 minimum-wage law unfairly treats its franchisees as large businesses, although they are independently owned and operated as small businesses. Under the new rules, they must increase their minimum wage to $15 in three or four years, rather than up to seven years as a small business.
