Not One Penny Statement on Procter & Gamble Pulling the Plug on Kansas Jobs

Thursday, February 8, 2018


WASHINGTON, D.C – In response to Procter & Gamble’s announcement that it would close a century-old Kansas factory despite receiving $3.2 billion in deferred tax benefits from Washington Republicans, Not One Penny spokesperson Robyn Patterson released the following statement:

“President Trump and Republicans in Congress gave Procter & Gamble a $3.2 billion corporate tax cut, so why isn’t P&G using that money to protect Kansas jobs? P&G’s move is just more evidence that corporate tax cuts go directly into the pockets of shareholders and corporate insiders. Wealthy corporations have already used their new tax breaks to complete $85 billion in corporate buybacks. That money could have gone to job training, education, and programs that improve the lives of middle-class Americans. Working Kansas families already knew that Trump’s $1 trillion corporate giveaway would jeopardize Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Now they’re learning it could cost them their jobs as well.”
