Stupid progressive liberal policies, THIS is what drives companies away.

  https://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/seattle-approves-head-tax-on-large-business...


The Seattle City Council on Monday approved a pared-down version of the “head tax” on the metro area’s largest employers to fund efforts to battle homelessness despite public criticism from local businesses, including e-commerce giant Amazon.

Approved by a vote of 8-1 on the amended version, the measure will go into effect in January 2019 and tax companies that earn $20 million or more in annual sales 14 cents per employee hour, or $275 per employee annually. The tax is expected to raise roughly $50 million per year toward outreach efforts for the homeless, including affordable housing and emergency shelter.

One of the ways to combat homelessness is employment and this will chase away businesses and ....employment.

This is one of the stupidest things a city could do.  It is quite literally a tax on employing people.

I wouldn't assume that they are all successful businesses.   It is based on total sales over 20 million dollars.  Amazon (one of the businesses targeted) had sales into the billions before they made any profit.

But ya.  Very stupid.
