  • So, healthcare is a right, housing is a right, jobs are a right...I don't think that word means what they think it means. In a world where those things are guaranteed, it would have to be a socialist syst....ohhh, never mind.

  • Yep, the lefties are all about giving to the poor as long as it's not their cash...

  • If you read the article you will see that it is a 'head tax' so it is paid based on how many full time employees each business has.. this might not work out to well... to punish companies based on number of employees... I sense a move in the works or a lot less employees or full time ones anyway... or.................robots......or all of the above.


    They didn't mention microlimp tho.

  • Republican state politicians are saying that the tax is illegal. Pretty sure passing on the cost to the consumers will just lower the income of the companies involved. There is LOT'S of competition for starbucks.. and Amazon makes it work because of cost and convienience... Walmart is delivering now.


    But.... Not sure that Amazon is left wing at all... They have a 'smile' option that allows you to pick any tax deductable institution and they send a portion of every dollar you spend at Amazon to that organization.


    In my case that is The California Rifle and Pistol one... It is a second amendment rights group that is very active and works with the NRA

  • I think Amazon should fire all of their Seattle workers (those that live in the districts that voted for these councilmen), relocate the rest out of Seattle, and offer to re-interview the fired workers for their old jobs elsewhere.


    And they should shutter their new construction entirely, leaving the eyesore unfinished and out in the open.

  • Last I saw I thought they did halt some construction.

  • I do not believe they started construction on the new building.. it was in the planning stages. but... I guarantee that the city is already spending the tax money they think they will get from the building once it is built.

  • Guess we will see in the next few years how many of those companies will relocate.
