The Daily Wire: The City of Seattle recently passed a $275 “head tax” on businesses. Originally the amount they wanted the tax to be was $500. Local businesses are fighting back but as a result, progressives have created a “list” to boycott these businesses. Kshama Sawant, a socialist council member for the City of Seattle, denied the existence of any such list.
Excerpt from The Daily Wire:
Despite polling that suggested every Seattle “head tax” proposal had little support, the Seattle City Council unanimously passed a $275 per-employee tax targeting Seattle’s biggest businesses. Now, businesses large and small are fighting back: they’re actively collecting signatures for a referendum to overturn the tax.
In response, unhinged progressive activists are going to great lengths to find any business that supports the referendum in order to boycott them, though, inexplicably, the activist behind the boycott list claimed it doesn’t really exist. Screenshots of her online conversation suggests she’s not being truthful.
