In response to the letter “New Seattle: Family Ties” from a teacher unable to afford to live in Seattle:
I think it is sad that the people who take care of us at the beginning of our lives from birth through high school (including day-care workers, preschool teachers, elementary, middle and high school teachers) and those people who take care of us at the end of our lives (assisted living, retirement home workers) don’t make enough money to be able to live in the city in which they work.
What does this say about the value of these people in our society?
Susan Mise, Seattle
