Long story short: tell big corporations to stop donating to the Republican politicians who tried to overturn the election, tell Dollar General to treat its workers much better, and tell our Interior Department to protect the Boundary Waters. Use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs to communicate your will.
In advance of what may be yet another explosive day of testimony from our January 6 Committee, Patriotic Millionaires helps you tell big corporations to stop donating to Republican insurrectionists in Congress, That would be the 147 Reps and Senators who refused to certify the election Donald Trump lost to Joe Biden by seven million votes. Remember when they said Mr. Trump earned a “mandate” from the people after he lost the popular vote to Hilllary Clinton by three million votes? Standards! And big corporations made all the right noises about campaign donations after January 6, but their actions give the lie to their words. They need to know we’re watching, and they need to know we’re done.
The Daily Kos Liberation League helps you tell Dollar General to stop oppressing workers with low pay and unsafe workplace conditions. You won’t be surprised to learn that more than nine-tenths of Dollar General workers make less than $15/hour while its CEO makes $1.7 million, but its numerous fire code violations, moldy conditions, and deliberate understaffing – which had led at least one OSHA administrator to slam their “blatant and continued disregard for the safety of their employees” – may surprise you. And not for nothing, but AC/heating issues make pandemics like the one we’re in now much worse. So Dollar General needs to get right.
Finally, Environmental Action helps you tell our Interior Department to protect the Rainy Rivers Watershed of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness from mining. Because mining equals pollution, even if some four billion tons of nickel and copper sit in and near the Wilderness. One would have to balance that against the probability that mining would pollute the Boundary Waters, but one would also have to balance that against the 150,000 visitors the Wilderness gets every year, people who go there for canoeing, fishing, hiking, and dog-sledding, among other activities. Life ain’t just about churning up the land and making executives rich.
