Jeff Bezos is a bully, I think we are in broad agreement on that. We saw the tweet from Bernie Sanders. What is happening is Amazon and Jeff Bezos are using their incomprehensible amount of wealth to hold an entire city hostage, to hold construction jobs hostage, saying they can’t pay a pocket change worth of taxes -- that’s the behavior of a bully.If the head tax passes, it would affect 600 of the biggest businesses in Seattle raising about $75 million a year.
Sawant says many unions support the head tax but construction unions have come out loudly in opposition.
Union leaders say about 20,000 workers in King County alone are against the measure and they worry that working-class families will lose their jobs.
