This petition is important because most Philadelphia area liquor licensed establishments will be forced to absorb this additional 5% tax increase into their own costs, any additional increase in the “liquor-by-the-drink” tax will most certainly jeopardize the livelihoods and businesses of thousands of hard working hospitality industry workers and business people.
In today's tough economy, some already struggling establishments may be forced out of business to avoid further losses.
Let's work together to find another solution without creating another problem and not sacrifice one industry for another!
