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.

You need to know this... Support for Donald Trump's campaign is still growing nationally, and in early primary states, but he's not just gaining support in early primary states. A new poll from Florida shows that Trump is leading Jeb by 6 percentage points - and he's leading Rubio by 16 points.
