Yum! Brands withdrawals from ALEC

1 post / 0 new

Even after the American Legislative Exchange Council agreed to dismantle its non-economic taskforces responsible for writing legislation like Voter ID laws and Shoot First laws – the exodus of corporate members continues. Today – Yum! Brands, which owns Pizza hut, KFC, and Taco Bell became the twelfth company or organization to drop its membership with ALEC.

This particular withdrawal is significant since Yum! Brands co-chaired ALEC’s Labor and Business Regulation Subcommittee, which has pushed legislation to repeal labor protections for workers. That’s twelve members of ALEC down – let’s hope more decide to drop out soon.

First Columbia took on their drug lords, now they're taking on their billionaires...why can't we?

America’s billionaires are driving this nation’s poverty epidemic. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

As we speak, working-class Americans are getting screwed over by policies that favor the wealthy elite, and leave everyone else in the dust. As a result, more and more Americans are living in poverty.
