Statement from Working Washington in response the lawsuit by Alaska Air & the airline industry attempting to overturn Washington’s paid sick time law.

The following statement can be attributed to Working Washington:

“Surely they can’t be serious. Can the airlines really be trying to argue that providing paid sick days is just too complicated for an industry that manages to charge a different price for every seat on every flight?

Workers’ rights and public health aren’t complicated. People who have aches on a plane should be able to take a sick day when they’re sick, just like every other worker in every other workplace in our state.”
