SEIU 721 members joined community groups in Downtown Los Angeles on Tax Day to stand up for the 99% and tell the 1% it’s time that they pay their fair share. Members played Dodgeball with “Tax Dodgers” and collected signatures for the Governor’s New Revenue Plan, which will increase state revenue by $8 billion a year and guarantee funding for public services.
April 17 was tax day for the hardworking families of Local 721, but for people like Mitt Romney and companies like Wells Fargo and General Electric, it’s never tax day. Romney pays less in taxes than his secretary. Last year, General Electric paid no taxes at all. In fact, GE got a refund!
This was just one of the many Tax Day actions that happened all over the Los Angeles area on April 17.
