Yes for SeaTac wants Alaska Air to drop legal challenge

Yes for SeaTac today released the following statement:
Today's hand recount of SeaTac Proposition 1 votes verified King County Election's earlier results. Observers reported viewing no changes to the county's vote counts.

King County Elections is expected to post the recount results before 4:30 today and re-certify the Prop 1 vote tomorrow.

SeaTac Proposition 1 is scheduled to go in to effect on January 1, 2014.

King County Superior Court Judge Darvas is scheduled to hold a hearing on Alaska Airlines' legal challenges this Friday.

Yes For SeaTac statement:

"We're disappointed that corporate lawyers at Alaska Airlines will stop at nothing to block living wages and paid sick days for more than 6,000 people working in the profitable travel industry. Thousands of people working full time jobs at Sea-Tac airport must rely on public assistance to feed their families and pay their heating bills. People doing the exact same jobs for Alaska Airlines at other airports, like San Jose and Los Angeles, make living wages and have paid sick days. Alaska Airlines should do the right thing, the fair thing, and drop its litigation."
