"they declined to do so this session due to the 'complexity' of their workplace"

"He also detailed some of the 'concerns' that emerged"

The use of quotes around "complexity" and "concerns" is an odd bit of editorializing. Rich spends the bulk of this post explaining why it has proven difficult to develop a union for legislative employees, and further explains Washington would be the first state in the country to develop legislation of this nature. This is indeed a complex issue raising many concerns. Why not treat it as such?

As an aside, this is why people don't take the Stranger seriously. If Rich just stuck to the facts, this would have been a decent piece. But he elected to insert his own opinion, which adds nothing, and actually contradicts his own findings.


Unions. Good for thee but not for me.

Please wait...
