    Councilmembers to Participate in ‘Workers Voice Summit’ Thursday

    SeattleCouncilmembers will participate in a “Workers Voice Summit” this Thursday to hear experiences and policy ideas from workers from a cross section of low-wage jobs in the region. The event, organized by a coalition of organizations representing workers, was developed to provide employees themselves the opportunity to address public officials regarding challenges relating to affordability, accessing jobs and housing, displacement, and other subjects.

    Council President Bruce Harrell will join others in making opening remarks, followed by comments from Councilmembers Lisa Herbold, Lorena González, Mike O’Brien, and Kshama Sawant. Two panels will follow; the first relating to worker experiences and the other regarding new policy ideas.
