Seattle Liberals Are Going To “Help The Homeless” By Getting Rid Of Jobs
May 15, 2018
Liberals are reeeeally good at finding solutions to things.
For example, the brainiacs in Seattle have decided to drive businesses AWAY from their city in order to build homes for homeless people and give service people raises.
I’m not kidding. The Seattle city council just passed a tax that completely BLASTS the city’s employers. Employers will be taxed $275 per employee. Because you know, driving away business and killing jobs is the BEST way to deal with a homelessness crisis. DUH.
The vote was unanimous, because Seattle is an idiotic liberal echo chamber where not one person spoke out about how MORONIC this is.
According to The Seattle Times, (who will also be hit by this new tax):
Following a weekend of high-stakes negotiations between Seattle City Council members and Mayor Jenny Durkan, the council voted unanimously Monday to tax the city’s largest employers to help address homelessness.
Starting next year, the tax will be $275 per employee, per year on for-profit companies that gross at least $20 million per year in the citY.
Amazon, which employs 45,000 people in Seattle, is required to contribute an extra $10 million a year. They’re fuming.
Would you be SHOCKED if 45,000 jobs up and leave the city?
I wouldn’t be.
But these liberal droolstains didn’t think about that, did they?
“We are disappointed by today’s City Council decision to introduce a tax on jobs,” said Amazon spokesman Drew Herdener. “We remain very apprehensive about the future created by the council’s hostile approach and rhetoric toward larger businesses, which forces us to question our growth here.”
As it should. Why stay in a city that literally works AGAINST business? Seattle CERTAINLY won’t see any job growth any time soon… and will probably start hemorrhaging jobs as soon as these companies figure out how to get out.
Other companies set to be taxed include Starbucks, The Seattle Times and longtime, family-owned supermarket Uwajimaya.
The tax is set to bring in $47 MILLION per year. Here’s what these morons are going to do with it: more here: https://www.chicksonright.com/2018/05/15/seattle-liberals-are-going-to-help-the-homeless-by-getting-rid-of-jobs/
