Amazon: Austin Does Not Want You!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
Austin has gotten too expensive for thousands of families, and the artists, musicians, young people, and working families that made it so “weird” are being forced out. Communities of color have been shattered and gentrified. We are on the brink of losing our city forever.
Amazon coming to Austin would be the end of our city for all but the rich. We need to tell Amazon that WE DON’T WANT THEM. Sign the petition right now to send Jeff Bezos and Amazon this message:
1. We won’t tolerate giveaways and corporate welfare for low wage employers and corrupt billionaires. We don’t want their greed in our city!
2. Traffic and transit are already taxed to their breaking point--we don’t have the infrastructure for such intense growth.
3. Go somewhere that is NOT having an affordability crisis, or better yet invest the $5 billion in better wages and conditions for your workers.
Amazon has already made Seattle nearly impossible for working people to live in, and other tech giants have ruined San Francisco. Lobbyist-loving corporate politicians gave those cities away; we can’t let our City Hall screw us too! Tell Amazon STAY OUT now!
