I am trying to get the word out about Big Business in America and how they treat us.
This morning started pretty much like every morning. We all have a morning routine and I was in mine. I sat down for breakfast and grabbed the Sunday paper.
When I got to the business section, a headline blared, "American Express CEO gets big Raise". A raise, I’m okay with that. But, as I read the story I find that he received a compensation package of "22.5 Million Dollars"
How far would 22.5 Million go to help wipe out polio in the world or to feed the people in the US that live on the street with little to eat? How about the Americans in the Midwest who lost everything in the last 2 days – 22.5 Million would go a long ways to help these people – bring in units for them to live in as they rebuild their lives. In our own area there are people who legitimately need a hand. What could we do with 22.5 Million dollars to help the needy in our area?
You don’t have to be rich to have an American Express Card. If you have one, don’t cancel it. It will cause your credit score to go down. Just do not use it for 1 year. Everyone can cooperate in this boycott against massive salaries that are so out of whack with reality and what we face in the United States and the world. Don’t buy anything that comes from American Express or that American Express advertises in/on. I refuse to use my American Express card or to buy anything with American Express advertisement. I will boycott American Express at every level for 1 year or until this obscene payment is corrected.
I am feed up and I am going to do something about it. If you agree please join this boycott. If you “twitter, use Facebook, have a Blog, or whatever on the internet, pass this along and get all of America involved.
I urge you to join the boycott and to let others know. Tell everyone you come in contact with that we are not going to tolerate any more obscene actions like a 22.5 Million Dollar Raise –for anybody. Send emails and letters to American Express to tell them that we are not going to stand for this type of travesty.
Boycott American Express and Speak out for those who really need the help. No one deserves a 22.5 Million Dollar Raise. Boycott American Express.
