On Friday, we told you about last week’s KUOW debate event over this question: Is Amazon good or bad for Seattle?
First, a correction: We said that before the event began, 56 percent of the audience voted that Amazon was good for the city while 46 percent disagreed. But that doesn’t add up – 44, not 46, percent of the audience said Amazon was bad for the Seattle. Sorry about that #mathfail. 😣 (Thanks to reader Mariel Montuori for catching that.)
Second, we asked YOU to vote on the question by choosing either A: Um, duh, they brought 40K jobs here! or B: No way – have you heard about their fulfillment centers? About 37 percent of you voted A, and 62 percent of you voted B. And Reader Daiga Galins e-mailed to ask for some more context on the fulfillment centers. Here’s more on that:
It’s almost time for another Evergrey reader meetup — this time at Maslow’s, a restaurant in South Lake Union. But Maslow’s isn’t just any restaurant. It’s run by Farestart, a nonprofit that trains disadvantaged locals for jobs in the food industry. We’ll be there on March 19 from 7 to 9 p.m., and we hope you’ll join us and the rest of The Evergrey community. RSVP here.
We’ll see you tomorrow. — The Evergrey
