So why-oh-why would the titans of the right pick there of all places to scream “Freedom!” and try to mount a Braveheart-like stand against something as mundane as a local ballot initiative to raise the minimum wage for many of the town’s workers to $15 per hour?

There you have it

Here's a little more background on just how hard they have been union busting at Seatac.

It should have gone to $25 an hour, just to make up for lost ground.

Along with the raise, workers won 6.5 paid sick days a year (which an opposition spokesperson called “essentially, a week’s vacation”).


Except for that whole sick thing.

How dare they get sick in a airport full germs and viruses from all over the World.

They should be giving all airport workers at least a month of sick leave.

What I love is how all those folks talking "community", have once again ignored a thread about a community that's fighting back, and making headway.

Is it because they are using unions to do so?

Shooz, you're supposed to go blow smoke up their asses. Failure not to will lead to down voting.
