Jobs in Pittsburgh: Speak Your Mind at Two Events

Are you fed up with Corporate America collecting $$billions$$ in tax cuts while refusing to create jobs? Join your neighbors at two important events.

Community Meeting with UPMC Officials

UPMC has come under much public criticism for some of its corporate decisions, including closing Braddock Hospital, scrapping plans for its vaccine formulating facility in Pittsburgh, threatening to end its contract with Highmark health insurance, and violating its “charitable” status by putting its own finances above the public good.

Meanwhile, they’re creating new jobs at facilities in Italy, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Cyprus, and the Middle East, and plan to expand in China. They refuse to create jobs in Pittsburgh because they’re not profitable enough. Those decisions have killed thousands of jobs in Pittsburgh.

WHAT

ONE Pittsburgh will host a community event for you to speak with UPMC officials about these decisions and how they affect your family.
