Seattle Passed a New Tax on Jobs in the Middle of an Economic Crisis—But Exempted Government Workers

FEE.Org-

The city of Seattle is already struggling. With a new tax on jobs, its city council seems determined to make things even worse.

The COVID-19 pandemic and local government lockdowns economically decimated Washington state in March, with Seattle hit especially hard in the early days of the virus’s spread. In the immediate aftermath of the COVID-19 outbreak, Seattle saw the biggest spike in unemployment of any city in the country. The city’s economy continues to flounder amid the pandemic.

On top of all this, Seattle descended into chaos and controversy on June 8 when Antifa and other radical left-wing activists seized control of a neighborhood and declared themselves the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.” Like so many before it throughout history, this utopian social experiment sadly turned deadly and ended 24 days later after multiple shootings.

Nonetheless, the Seattle City Council has decided that now is the right time to impose a new tax burden on its residents. On July 6, the council passed the so-called “JumpStart” tax, which specifically targets middle-class jobs. more here

  1. There’s a certain amount of logic to the thought that in 5 years places like Seattle, L.A., San Fransisco, Portland etc, will be conservative strong holds. Reason being all these dumb ass libs will make these places uninhabitable and move the fuck out to screw someplace new up.

  2. If the Tech companies (and Boeing for that matter) that have presence in Seattle ever decide enough is enough and decide to leave Washington then Seattle becomes a third world city almost overnight. I remember a few years back Boeing was thinking over moving to South Caroline and the Governor went apeshit and folded on almost all of Boeing’s demands. As it was Boeing (in a very smart move) took Dreamliner assemble there and established a huge presence because you never know…..

    As for the Tech companies they are built such that they could almost move over the weekend to another state, like Texas maybe. Unfortunately the lefties that caused a lot of the bullshit to begin with would end up moving with them but maybe s lesson would be learned by those morons.

  3. Just like Bernie screaming for $15 min wage and then you find out he doesn’t even pay his campaign staff a current min wage.

  4. And for every ten jobs worth $150,000 / yr that leave this third world sh**hole of a city at least twelve to fourteen $30 – $70,000/ yr support and service jobs will evaporate.

    Let’s think about it as a test platform, zero federal bailout dollars, let the socialists create their dreamworld, then come back in a decade and see the results.

  5. “What the welfare system and other kinds of governmental programs are doing is paying people to fail. Insofar as they fail, they receive the money; insofar as they succeed, even to a moderate extent, the money is taken away.”

  6. When you see your enemy eviscerating their own sources of wealth used to finance the war they are waging against you it’s time to recline in the shade and watch them bleed out.

  7. It would appear that that ugly, Indian Commie was planted in this country to sow dissension and disruption which begs the question why did we let her in here and why do we keep her here?

  9. I have never understood government’ propensity to tax. I knew someone who worked for King County (where Seattle is) is the transit division in the shop side of things.

    He told me that when they got new busses, they had a place in Pierce County were they would take delivery. The reason was that King County had some sort of vehicle transfer tax that would have to be paid If they took delivery in King County. They avoided it by going outside the county. It was not an official office. As I recall it was just a quite road someplace.

  10. Just as an aside, Sawant’s picture is a giant turn-off. Spend some time studying the bitch through various videos and you will never want to see her face again. Thanks for not posting it on this page, BFH!

  11. @BadBrad That’s an interesting concept. All the Lefties I know aren’t planning to move or even think anything is really wrong with the way things are going here. They just hate Trump. Trump! Trump! Trump!

    A Bothell police officer was killed Monday night by a Black BLM activist. The only place I see acknowledgement of this was just now at Gateway Pundit. The local news is in lockdown about releasing that fact. I saw it on Twitter when the manhunt was on-because the Bothell PD was looking for him and had a suspect description.

    Same lefties who protest for BLM won’t do the same for a police officer.

  12. Seems we are under attack from transplant commies from various countries. China, India, south and central Americas. About the only country I’m not worried about is the former communist USSR.

    This bitch (along with AOCs former campaign manager, can’t recall his name), need to be bivouacked back to India to live out the remainder of their miserable lives in a slum of their choosing, at the lowest level of the caste system.

  15. Increase the taxes on the working/skilled and give the useless a universal basic income. That is what Cocksucker turdeau is doing up here.

    Welcome to the enslaved middle class, the proletariat poor and the ultra wealthy will be left alone to create money & income & teck innovation for the government.

    Gee, I wonder how many non-governmental workers will see the light or even give a phuck.
