UPMC is the region’s #1 employer and #1 healthcare provider — and they are also our #1 tax dodger.
We give UPMC special tax breaks with the idea that they invest in our community. Yet they’ve taken the millions we give them each year and spent their huge profits on CEOpay, building hospitals in the affluent suburbs while closing them in working-class communities, and expanding their operations in Italy and Qatar.
With Pittsburgh’s buses, education and health services on the chopping block, it’s time for UPMC to do their part.
Join parents, kids, transit riders, clergy, and the rest of the 99 percent to demand that UPMC start acting like a community institution. UPMC, pay your fair share!
