      Matco srews three times as many investors as I have supporters on this petition each year. I need your help to make this go viral. Everyone needs to know that the entire franchising industry is foul and corrupt.

      Matco Tools is one big scam and their policies on signing franchises must be changed. They sign you up, get you started and terminate your franchise for any reason at all. They also have an extremely high failure rate, why? There is hardly any support in the field, you have a district manager who may live hundreds of miles away and the only time he comes to see you is to terminate your franchise. Do not sign with this company, the way they operate is complete fraud. They sign you a number of technicians in a territory and many of them are just oil changers and managers in the store. They will count any and all who are in a shop as a technician. THIS COMPANY RUNS A SCAM AND MUST STOP NOW, DO NOT SIGN WITH MATCO TOOLS!!!

      TODD is right ----the franchising industry is foul and corrupt because The Congress of the USA will not change the FTC Rule that permits franchisors to survive by devouring their franchisees.

      The targeting of the returning troops and the retired military is "sick" capitalism.
