Tax Bill Favors Adding Robots Over Workers, Critics Say
12/11/17 - Teamsters Local 355
Dec. 11, 2017  | JOBS |  Republicans call their tax bill the Tax Cut and Jobs Act. But critics say maybe it should have been named the Tax Cut and Robots Act.

Anti-Police Initiative 940 Meets Signature Milestone
12/08/17 - Spokane Police Guild
De-Escalate Washington is using deceptive tactics to gather signatures for Initiative 940, of which the purported intent is to reduce violence in communities. The Washington State Fraternal Order of Police and WACOPS emphatically opposes this initiative. I-940 is redundant of already established laws and destructive to the Law Enforcement community. The initiative campaign attempting to change Washington state's deadly force law, to make it easier to hold police accountable for fatal shootings, has met a signature milestone. Supporters of De-Escalate Washington say they'll now take the 280,000 signatures collected to the Secretary of State's office with the hopes of putting Initiative 940 on the 2018 ballot, or into the next legislative session.
