Head tax opponents and supporters crowd Seattle City Hall on Tuesday, June 12, 2018.

Bill Radke talks to two businesses that opposed the head tax about what solutions they're hoping to see, now that the head tax has been repealed. What do Seattle businesses need to do now? What's their responsibility?

We talk to Glenn Kelman, CEO of Redfin, and Saul Spady, grandson of the co-founder of Dick's Drive-In restaurants who runs the ad agency, Cre8ive Empowerment. Spady also led the No Tax on Jobs campaign, however he wasn't representing them in our conversation.
