Spending Your Money to Get More of Your Money
And they plan a major campaign with your money to convince you to approve this tax in a February special election.
Normally, when government wants to hit an industry with a tax that industry will fight against it. However telephone companies who have to clear many regulatory hurdles with the City to provide profitable services they would like to offer don't want to rock the boat. So the official word from the phone companies is "hands off."
The unions of course will be joining in because, well someone has to pay for those 28% pay raises. Here are some questions for voters:
Why would you vote to approve a tax the courts have already said you don't have to pay?
Why would you vote to approve a tax when the City has clearly shown its wasting money and has misplaced priorities?
Why should you vote to approve a tax to give City workers a 28% pay raise? When did you get a 28% pay raise from your employer?
No Phone Tax!
