Message to Merck

To be delivered to Kenneth C. Frazier, Merck & Co. CEO

Petition Statement

• Take pride in being American!
• Come back home to Rahway!
• Pay your fair share in taxes!
There are currently 52 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100 signatures!

Petition Background

Merck's business practices & lobbying priorities pit the global company against members of the Rahway community and all working class Americans. Merck's actions reduced corporate tax contributions by increasing the share of government expenses paid for by working people, homeowners and other segments of society.

Merck is turning its back on the obligations of citizenship, from stashing $55 billion in profits overseas to skirt federal tax obligations to support America, to knocking down buildings at the Rahway plant -- which Merck called its global headquarters for a century -- to reduce by one-third local tax payments funding police, fire and sanitation services in the company's hometown.

These actions may be legal, but they are morally wrong and we call for corrective action: 1) Take pride in being American; 2) Come back home to Rahway; 3) Pay your fair share in taxes!
