Backing Corporate Greed At The Expense Of Working Families & Small Businesses
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce claims to represent millions of businesses “of all sizes, sectors, and regions,” but the reality is the Chamber mainly speaks for large corporations whose interests clash with small family businesses and working families.
Bridge Project’s latest report, “Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Men: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce: Backing Corporate Greed At The Expense Of Working Families & Small Businesses,” reveals how the U.S. Chamber puts the interests of oil and gas companies, Wall Street, Big Tobacco, and for-profit colleges first and spends millions to elect candidates that back their anti-working families platform.
As revealed in the report, the Chamber opposes regulations that protect working families and small businesses, such as buy local mandates, minimum wage increases, Wall Street financial reform, equal pay, and paid leave. Instead, the corporate front group advocates destructive policies that hurt the environment, our health and well-being, and send jobs overseas in hopes of padding the wallets of its members.
