AFT-Oregon President Jaime Rodriguez was quoted in a news release by the Oregon Center for Public Policy (OCPP) today.  Citing “ample evidence” that corporations have been using aggressive tactics to avoid paying taxes, a report released by the OCPP urged the Oregon legislature to require large corporations to make public how much they pay in state income taxes and what tax breaks they use.

"Corporate tax avoidance undermines the well-being of Oregonians,” said Rodriguez. “It means less resources for education, health care, and other public services that benefit all Oregonians. These services strengthen the state’s workforce that corporations count on.”
