Seattle passes payroll tax targeting Amazon and other big businesses
Who else is going to pay for the CHOP/CHAZ cleanup? Seattle leadership seems like it is TRYING to chase jobs out of the city.
Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda, who introduced the JumpStart legislation, said the tax’s approval is a “big step towards creating a progressive tax system that works for all.” The tax didn’t garner support from Seattle’s business community, however, with the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce saying the tax “pins Seattle’s economic future on local businesses remaining strong, at a time when the depth and breadth of the crisis is still unfolding.”
