And tell them you are Boycotting Them:
By now you've probably heard the news that Burger King is trying to pull one Whopper of a Tax Dodge.
Burger King is an American company worth more than $9 Billion dollars. They’re currently in talks to buy Canda’s largest coffee-shop chain, Tim Hortons Inc. But this isn’t just about donuts and coffee: Burger King’s sinister plan is to use the merger as an excuse to relocate their corporate headquarters to Ontario, Canada, thereby dodging their American taxes in a calculated move called “tax inversion."
Burger King’s stock is already soaring on the news of this tax dodge - because no one loves a Tax Cheat like Wall Street.
If we let this shady deal go through, Burger King’s largest shareholder - a private equity firm called 3G Capital - will win, and the American people will lose. Again.
Unless we stop them.
Thanks for everything you do to make this movement real.
Sincerely, John Sellers, Other 98%
Other 98% Action is fighting the stranglehold that corporations have on our democracy.
