Protesting the Corporate Tax Breaks/Evasions

Some working folks took to the street yesterday to point out the hidden obvious — the big get away with big breaks, while the little guy east dust.

City nurses, janitors and other workers marched to Twitter’s headquarters on tax day Tuesday to deliver a symbolic tax bill for tens of millions of dollars for the “corporate tax giveaway” that helped persuade the company to move to San Francisco’s Mid-Market area

Protesters target Apple for offshore tax shelters

Protesters dressed up as Apple Store employees in telltale blue t-shirts marched in front of the Union Square store Tuesday morning, calling on Apple to pay taxes on the $102 billion they said the company holds overseas.

The protest called on tech’s ethos of making the world a better place. Flyers handed out at the protest to shoppers passing by the store pointed them to www.techcandobetter.org, which pushes for better wages for security guards at tech companies.

SEIU USWW, the union that organized the march, represents security guards and janitors at many companies, not just tech, in San Francisco and the East Bay.
