Tax Day April 15, 2014 @ Federal Building

 What: Tax Day Demo
WHERE: Federal Building, 100 State St., Rochester, NY

WHEN: Tuesday, April 15th, 12pm 

This Tax Day, remember that THE GAP BETWEEN THE VERY RICH AND THE REST OF US HAS NEVER BEEN GREATER! In 1980, CEO pay equaled 42 times the average blue-collar worker’s pay. By 2011, CEO pay had grown to 380 times workers’ average pay, by far the widest gap in the world.

Despite the recession, CEOs are doing better than ever, pulling in record-high profits and rewarding themselves with lavish stock options, retirement plans and golden parachutes. Meanwhile, millions are still looking for work and struggling to make ends meet with part-time jobs and depressed wages.

Our system has become so rigged that no matter what happens, the rich keep getting richer and working families continue paying for it in the form of slashed jobs, wages, health benefits and retirement. Working behind closed doors to make that happen are groups like CEO-backed “Fix the Debt,” which drums up debt hysteria to mask their efforts to secure even more tax cuts for the wealthy while plotting to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits for working people.

This Tax Day, April 15th, and shine a light on CEOs and corporations in your state and the growing gap between the very rich and working families. Expose shadowy groups like Fix the Debt and call them what they are: greedy CEOs determined to make working families pay for their extravagant salaries and benefits. Reject the same old failed “trickle-down” policies championed by some elected leaders. All working people need to have a voice in their workplaces and their democracy.
