Hard to believe, but McDonald's just bought a $35 million corporate jet, which also costs $2,400 an hour to operate. This, after the PR strafing they've been taking over paying their workers so little they need public assistance (i.e., from you and your taxes) to get by! This, after giving them budgeting "advice" like "get another job"! I know I'll hear from folks who say big corporations need big corporate jets, but they should already know how I feel about the very existence of big corporations in the first place. And, frankly, if they paid their workers fairly, they wouldn't need the biggest and baddest corporate jet to impress the biggest and baddest corporate jerks, because the workers would have their backs and the world would be a more civilized place. Daily Kos helps you tell McDonald's to stop buying these big toys until they pay their workers fairly.
Meanwhile, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell the EPA to ban the pesticides that have contributed heavily to bee colony collapse, the Sierra Club still helps you do that. Bees have been dying off en masse all over the planet for several years now, and studies have found that neonicotinoid pesticides (or "neonics") have messed with bees' abilities to find their hive and to feed. And the European Union has suspended the use of neonics across the continent -- but (stop me if you've heard this one before) big corporations have thus far managed to persuade the EPA to let them keep using neonics. And on that note: H.R. 2692, the Save America's Pollinators Act of 2013, would make the EPA suspend neonic use on our lands until and unless the EPA can determine they're safe to use; the People's Email Network helps you tell your Congressfolk to support it. After all, if the EPA won't act, Congress must act -- and vice versa.
