Take Action to End Enterprise Zone Giveaways to Walmart and Strip Clubs

California needs good jobs. But under the broken enterprise zone program, millions of our tax dollars are being wasted on strip clubs and mega-corporations like Walmart. It's time to end the enterprise zone abuse of taxpayer money.

Gov. Brown is proposing to flip the enterprise zone program so it provides incentives for good jobs for those who need them most in industries that build the middle class, like manufacturing. The governor's program would end the waste and abuse of our tax dollars that currently line the pockets of Walmart executives and strip club owners.

Please send a message to your legislators TODAY in support of the governor's jobs proposal.

Take Action to Close the “Walmart Loophole”

Take action to close the "Walmart loophole" --  sign the petition today!
