Hired Up! Job Postings
A broad coalition of progressive organizations staged rallies around the country yesterday to protest the manifestly unfair tax system that allows some corporations to escape their tax responsibilities entirely. Events similar to ones in Missouri took place all over the country targeting “The Deadbeat Dozen”—GE, Bank of America, Google, BP, Amazon, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, Boeing, ExxonMobil, FedEx, Goldman Sachs, Chase—wealthy corporations that are doing everything in their power to avoid paying taxes in America.
KTVI had a good story on the St. Louis action last night.
In the cover story for the last issue of The Nation, GRO - Grass Roots Organizing in Missouri was recognized by author John Nichols for their work with the National People's Action network. From Nichols' story:
