    Corporations have more than an obligation to their stockholders, they also have an obligation to their communities - to the federal, state and local governments who give them tax breaks and incentives.

    This strike represents a turning point in our national dialogue about how much we as individuals, voters and communities should sacrifice to help privately owned businesses that serve only their investors.

    It's time to end these practices and pass laws that make businesses more ethical, more responsible, more beholden to their workers and the general public who are responsible for their existence.

    Please stand by. I'm looking for a new sig line.
