Growing Living Wage Jobs
- The Port has been an economic engine for high salary jobs such as longshoremen, engineers, shipbuilders and more. With many of these jobs holding median salaries of $70,000 a year, the Port can be an economic tool to fight the high cost of living throughout King County.
- Not all employees at the Port do as well. Casual laborers, concessionaires, and taxi drivers still struggle to make a living wage. That is why I support "the Fight for 15."
- If we want to kick the Port's economic engine into overdrive and help our community prosper, we have to implement apprenticeship programs. I will team up with schools and trades organizations alike to implement apprenticeship programs for those looking for an alternative career path.
