Petition to Charter Communications Shareholders
Make Charter/Spectrum accountable for how it treats its workers and customers.
Charter Communications - attacks the middle class by taking away the current pension and health benefits of 1800 Spectrum/Charter workers who have been on strike since March 28, 2017. Charter Communications - lays off 56 workers in call center in Lexington, KY. Charter Communications - lays off 200 workers in call center in Palm Desert, CA. Charter Communications - fired NY1 reporters loved by the community to be replaced by younger, cheaper labor. Charter Communications - failed to deliver promised internet speeds and reliability and is currently being sued by NY State Attorney General. How is it that Spectrum/Charter's CEO, Tom Rutledge, can earn 98.5 million dollars and not give his workers their fair share of earnings? Charter raises prices despite "awful service" as Lexington tries to break free of Spectrum's monopoly. Charter continues to bully and drops Northwest Broadcasting's stations without negotiating fairly.
Petition to U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives
Expand Health Coaching - Pass the Health Savings Acts of 2017!
The International Association for Health Coaches wants to make getting healthy more affordable and expand the accessibility of Health Coaches everywhere. That’s why we worked with United States Senators and Representatives to include “health coaching” as an allowable pre-tax expense in Health Savings Account expansion bills. S.403 and H.R.1175 were recently introduced by Senator Hatch (R-UT) and Representative Paulsen (R-MN) to help make health coaching more affordable for our clients. Every day we are inundated with unhealthy options, from the candy bar at the checkout counter to the coke in the office break room to the drive-through calling your name on the way home. Eating healthy isn’t rocket science but it does take support, guidance, and knowledge. Health Coaches are playing a significant role in reducing lifestyle-related chronic diseases and their work significantly reduces medical costs. Unfortunately, those who make the choice to seek the guidance and support of a Health Coach must pay out of pocket for their services. Getting healthy should be incentivized, not penalized! This policy improves access to health and wellness and lower the cost of a client's wellness expenses by expanding health savings accounts to include health coaching. Among other things, these bills will allow people to pay for Health Coaches with their pretax income giving more people control over their personal health care spending to hire Health Coaches. Set a precedent for the inclusion of Health Coaches in important national health initiatives and provide further evidence of the growing acceptance of Health Coaches.
