Tell Yuengling: Stop Attacking the Working Class

To be delivered to Yuengling Brewery

Petition Statement

Mr. Yuengling’s comments, pushing for gutting collective bargaining rights through so-called “right-to-work” laws and lower corporate taxes, do nothing but hurt working people in Pennsylvania and around the country.

Lowering corporate taxes will further hurt working people, students and seniors who rely on government assistance, and will allow Mr. Yuengling to grow his billions in fortune even more.

Corporations with a long history like yours should respect working people, not attack them in the name of getting richer.
There are currently 6,920 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

In 2009 Yuengling Brewing busted its employees union, but apparently that wasn’t enough.

On August 26, 2013 Yuengling Brewery owner Dick Yuengling Jr. spoke at the Pennsylvania Press Club about his desire to see so-called “right-to-work” policies implemented in Pennsylvania.

Apparently Yuengling wants to deny workers the right to earn a good income and benefits for their families, while padding his bottom line. Just last year Yuengling was named on a list of the richest people in America, yet he wants to get richer.

Along with advocating for right-to-work policies, he wants to cut the taxes his business pays.

Corporations need to pay their fair share to help the economy, not find ways to pay less.

Tell Yuengling to respect the working class.
