Seattle Tourism at a Crossroads
The Seattle-area hotel sector is poised to grow at an incredible pace over the next few years. More hotels mean more jobs along the light rail corridor – Downtown and near the Airport. But will these jobs mean greater prosperity for Seattle-area workers – the housekeepers, bellmen, servers, and dishwashers that are part of Seattle’s working poor?
Come learn from workers and other stakeholders about what we can do to ensure hotels and hotel workers to thrive in our region, and explore the common ground that allows for shared prosperity and a better Seattle.
Co-sponsored by: Seattle City Councilmembers Mike O’Brien, Nick Licata, Bruce Harrell, Tom Rasmussen, Jean Godden and Tim Burgess, King County Councilmembers Larry Gossett and Julia Patterson, Puget Sound Sage, Low Income Housing Institute, Economic Opportunity Institute, Faith Action Network, Church Council of Greater Seattle, Pride at Work, Seattle Gay News, One America, Asian Pacific Islander Coalition of King County (APIC), Central Co-op, and a growing list!
Featuring welcome remarks by Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and King County Executive Dow Constantine.
