Seattle- In 2013, a relatively unknown lawful immigrant from India named Kshama Swant decided that she was going to run for office as a socialist. She was an economic instructor in the city and a member of the Socialist Alternative Party. She had previously run unsuccessfully for the house of representatives but lost. In the race for city council though, she won.

Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant leads a crowd of protesters at the Amazon Spheres in downtown Seattle. Sawant wants to tax large corporations like Amazon to pay for affordable housing in Seattle.

Ironworkers shout down Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant with chants of “No Head Tax,” at Amazon headquarters in Seatttle on Thursday, May 3. On Wednesday, the company announced it would pause construction on that project until the City Council votes on the “head tax,” which would charge businesses with more than $20 million in annual revenue 26 cents per employee for every hour worked. The funds would go toward affordable housing and homeless services.

The Seattle City Council votes to repeal the head tax on June 12, 2018.

Back in November 2017 Business head tax for homeless fails to get traction in Seattle.
