This week, the anti-gentrification act of blocking a private shuttle full of high-paid tech workers spread to Seattle, where a handful of buses carrying Microsoft employees were stopped by demonstrators. The protest was chronicled by local Tweeps and community websites.
The demonstrators passed out a flyer suggesting that tech-workers moving to the city — and commuting elsewhere — were infusing Seattle with their bland, one-dimensional lifestyle and “sucking out what’s left of Seattle’s soul.” The flier blamed tech workers for putting a pinch on housing and driving up housing costs.
