Space needle employees protest 1000 days without a raise

03.19.15

On the morning of Wednesday March 18th employees of the Space Needle Corporation gathered outside the Seattle landmark to protest working for over 1,000 days without any kind of raise. After employees, and council members Kshama Sawant and Nick Licata spoke to the assembled crowd, the group marched over to the Space Needle Corporation offices only blocks away and handed a list of demands with signatures of employees to the corporation’s public relations manager. Media were quickly told upon entry onto the premises of the office to stop taking pictures and filming. Most of us snagged a few shots anyway. Read The Stranger’s Sydney Brownstone’s reporting on both the event and the space needle’s history of labor-related issues.
