Could you put a little more socialist bias in your description of the events?
Why no complaints about the 50,000+ six-figure jobs Microsoft created in King County? Or about how Seattle and the Eastside have some of the best public schools on the planet, funded by property taxes, paid by homeowners who work for MS, Amazon, and Google among others? Or about how the technological innovation these companies, and others, provide, funded by the money they don't have to pay as taxes, has improved the abilities of humans around the world to access information and training?
I'm guessing that as a typical socialist, you're unable to understand the concept of opportunity cost (i.e. when taxes remove money from the private sector, the private sector has to cut R&D, expansion, or other expenditures). You probably think that a broken window is good for the economy, despite what Bastiat proved.
