I get why republicans go after stuff like this... they want government to stay out of businesses and so forth... but they're so fucking ham-fisted about it it's no wonder people think they're insane or angry.

Are they so wrapped in fog that they don't realize people will interpret this as an attack on sick workers rather than an attack on government regulations?

Still, good to see they've gotten rid of their old aversion to top-down regulation. I'm sure they'll now be thrilled when we kill off DOMA and implement comprehensive gun safety training, registration, and liability laws at the federal level.

@2 The why is that they are being paid by the Chamber of Commerce types to pass an anti-labor agenda.
Any other explanations they offer are lies.

I thought the tea-baggers supported 'local control?' Why do these non-Seattleites care what happens in Seattle?

Do you really think the sick leave law will have any impact? Employers will simply give people a specified number of "personal days," to be used for any purpose. They've been doing this for years. How naive can anyone be, including the Republicans who want to repeal Seattle's feel-good (oops) law?

I'm sorry but Rodney Tom needs a serious ass kicking.

Every time I read about something these assholes are doing it sounds more like something you'd find in a game in a political science class than something that's actually happening in the real world. They're not interested in the real world or whether something is practical because this is mostly a game and they're just trying to show off that they're better at this game than these stupid people who actually care about the outcome.

Rodney Tom is such a liar. He told the Senate Democrats not to worry, that he is only concerned about education, jobs and the budget, and that any objectionable bills from his new reactionary friends will be blocked by the House Democrats and the Governor's veto. Now we're all engaged in a game of wack-a-mole, blocking ALEC-inspired bills, this bill that keeps restaurant, child care and retail works from coming to work sick in the midst of a flu epidemic and a 30%-below-minimum wage "training wage" that includes no training. The Environmental Coalition is tracking 150 bills, most of them bad. I would be happy to make a monthly contribution to a Defeat Rodney Tom Fund.
