Tell Mott's You'll Boycott Until It Stops Employee Pay Cuts

One year after Mott's reaped a record $555 million in profit, executives are insisting on downsizing employee pay at a plant in Williamson, New York, by $1.50 an hour — not to mention severely cutting benefits across the board.

Tell Dr. Pepper Snapple, Mott's corporate owner, that this unjustified behavior is hurting American workers and needs to stop immediately, or you will refuse to purchase Mott's products.

The icing on the cake? Executives from Dr. Pepper Snapple explained the slash in compensation by telling workers to think of themselves as a "commodity," like "soybeans or oil," whose value had dropped.

This sort of rhetoric proves that Dr. Pepper Snapple has no respect for the hard work of its employees. Speak up and show your support for the 300 striking Mott's workers in Williamson — sign the petition below.

      I have one request for anyone who believes in fair compensation for America's workers: take a moment to tell your family and friends about the Mott's strike.
      By now, you've probably heard a word or two about the 300 person-strong, hundred-day strike...

      Looks like I'll be teaching my after-school kids to make their own applesauce?

      Are the managers also having their wages cut? Mayby you should simply state the rule that managers may not be paid more than five times as much as the lowest paid worker. Then they would think twice about cutting wages.

      So its alright to give a large paycheck to a C.E.O. but for the workers who are doing the actual work, they get their pay cut. Stop with the pay cuts and lower the amount how much top executives and give the average worker equal pay. All these problems going on in companys are going unanswered and we need to start now!
