Do you pay your fair share in taxes? You probably pay more than your fair share for wars, bailouts and corporate givebacks. FedEx, on the other hand, dodges taxes left and right as budget cuts are slashing education, firehouses, libraries, jobs, benefits, etc.
US Uncut states, “When it comes to paying their fair share of taxes, FedEx simply does not deliver. When FedEx made $1.9 billion in profits, they managed to pay less than .0005% of it in taxes by using 21 tax havens. FedEx also spent 42 times (4200%) more on lobbying Congress than they did in taxes.”
Meanwhile, they have cut thousands of jobs, and have paid the FedEx Ground CEO David Rebholz over $4.5 million in “compensation” last year. What did he do to deserve this reward? Keep wages low and bust unions drives, apparently. FedEx Ground package handlers make less than $11,000 a year, wages so low they qualify for food stamps and Mass Health while doing grueling physical labor with no breaks, no sick days and poverty wages.
FedEx Ground package handlers in Brockton, MA are standing up and fighting back. They deserve all of our support. FedEx management has called the cops on these workers while they were organizing off of company property. Still, Brockton workers filed for election with the NLRB to be represented by Teamsters Local 653. Oppose tax dodging? Hate union busters? Angry about corporate domination? Help us organize FedEx workers into unions across the country. Build actions to oppose FedEx tax dodging. We can do this. Let’s win.
