STEVE ON SOCIAL
Putting politics over jobs, Governor Inslee just vetoed a huge, bi-partisan incentive to create lost manufacturing jobs for the middle class, and close the so-called "Boeing Loophole." The vetoed language would've extended the Boeing tax break to ALL manufactures regardless of size or political power.
Manufacturing by the numbers:
-51,600 manufacturing jobs lost in Washington since 2000, the only major sector seeing losses since that time.
-21% Washington's employment growth since 2000, well beyond the 12% seen nationally.
-47,700 non-aerospace jobs lost.
-0.484% current business and occupation tax rate for manufacturers
-0.2904% current business and occupation tax rate for Boeing and other aerospace companies, and the new rate for all manufacturing companies passed by the Legislature.
4.5 to 1 ratio of votes in support to votes against on this legislation in the Senate and House.
So disappointing. ... See MoreSee Less
Angela Lineberry- SimmonsWell what do you expect from insleezy. He just passed a new tax on property owners or fix "the budget" without us the people voting to ok a new tax.
