New York (CNN Business) Kroger will close two stores in Seattle over the city’s $4-an-hour hazard pay requirement for grocery workers, an escalation of the grocery chain’s push against newly-passed hazard pay laws growing on the West Coast.

The company, the largest grocery chain in the United States, will close two of its QFC stores in April in response to Seattle’s hazard pay measure that requires grocery stores in the city that are bigger than 85,000 square feet to pay workers an extra $4 an hour in hazard pay. The law went into effect earlier this month.
