We've Been Robbed

Did you hear about Alaska Airlines' latest attempt to block thousands of airport workers from getting higher wages? Their big national airline lobby group has filed a Federal lawsuit, claiming that the Port of Seattle doesn't have the power to set minimum wages at the airport.

That might sound familiar, because last year Alaska sued in state court, claiming SeaTac voters don't have the power to raise wages either. And all this after they spent big bucks trying to keep SeaTac Proposition 1 off the ballot, and then campaigning unsuccessfully to vote $15 down.

Seems like they'll try anything to steal away $15. But workers are willing to do whatever it takes, too. Join us for a major rally at Alaska's corporate headquarters:

Alaska Airlines can afford to ensure that every worker who serves their passengers is paid enough to support themselves, afford the basics, and contribute to the economy. They're banking record profits — a half-billion dollars last year alone. They're adding flights out of Sea-Tac. They're even investing in a billion-dollar airport remodel, along with Delta and other airlines.

And yet it seems they're willing to try anything — local elections, state court, Federal lawsuits, whatever — to stop airport workers & our communities from getting what we won at the ballot box.

We know who's robbed us of our $15. And we're not going to take it anymore. Join us at Alaska headquarters on November 19th.
