On June 27 and 28, Together, Seattle Works, will bring together civic leaders who are working to support the greater Seattle “family-wage” job base. Thanks to past collaborations, more than 100,000 good industrial jobs still exist within the Seattle City Limits, generating career opportunities and prosperity for a very wide cross-section of the community.
