Fill the Courtroom! Friday, November 17 Meet up with OWLS in front of the Court House 9-9:30 am. Hearing at 10am.
The misnamed “Freedom Foundation” is infamous for pushing racist “Right to Work” (Starve) laws that make it harder to bargain for better wages and conditions. Now, this rightwing think tank is challenging Seattle’s “high-income-earners tax” in court. The new tax, passed by the city council in July, would give some relief from our state’s superregressive tax structure. It would raise $140 million for human services with a 2.5% tax on income over $250,000 per year ($500,000 for couples). King County Superior Court, 516 3rd Ave., in Judge Ruhl’s courtroom
