Michelin North America, Inc.: Stop penalizing your fat employees!


Employees with a waist size of >40 inches for men or >35 inches for women will have to pay an additional $1,000 per year in insurance premiums. This is a de facto pay cut for fat people who don't go on a diet. This is an abuse of corporate power and we will not purchase Michelin Tires until this practice ends.

And if you think this is an unfair way to treat your employees, please sign our CVS Pharmacy petition as well.

We will not buy Michelin tires until you stop financially penalizing your employees based on their body size. It is not truly voluntary, it is discriminatory and it is an abuse of your power. We stand with the employees of Michelin, who have a right to privacy in their health choices.
