First-class Airport, Poverty Classs Jobs outlines recommendations that Alaska Airlines and the Port of Seattle should take to ensure that all SeaTac airport jobs are good jobs. After much investigation of the working conditions of airline-contracter employees at SeaTac airport, the report concludes that Alaska Airlines, which contracts with different companies for these services, and the Port of Seattle, the local government agency that owns and operates SeaTac, share in the responsibility setting low standards that create poverty wage jobs.
