The Washington Government Pay Plunge Challenge!
In light of the recent announcement that pretty much all small businesses are now subject to a government shutdown and working families with children now have to struggle between finding childcare for the next six weeks and risking their jobs staying home to take care of their kids, I'm issuing a challenge to Jay Inslee and all executive level government officials.
- multiple times I've heard executive level government officials tell us we are all in this together. If that's true then we should all have to tighten our belts and struggle through this together. I'm challenging the Washington state government to freeze the pay of all executive level elected officials until this emergency order is lifted. If Working Families have to struggle through this without pay or at a reduced pay rate then the elected officials representing them can go without as well.
