Educational Presentation

“Where’s The Money?”

& The Oil Depletion Tax Initiative

Presentations/Video
Monday June 27, 2011
San Francisco Labor Council Meeting

1621 Market St/Franklin St. 2nd Fl. San Francisco

California is one of the wealthiest places in the world yet there is not enough money for education and public services. Peter Mathews, a professor, former member of AFT 2121 and now a CTA union member at Cypress College in Orange County will make a report on the only initiative for the upcoming November ballot to tax the oil companies to fund education. He will be introduced by AFT 2121 past president and SFLC delegate Roger Scott.

The initiative has been endorsed by the San Francisco Labor Council and more information on it can be located at
http://www.rescueeducationcalifornia.org
Even Alaska has a 25% depletion oil tax yet California has no such tax and this initiative will raise up to $3 billion for public education.

Also a video will be presented on the attack on public workers and where the money is. This presentation will take place following the San Francisco Labor Council meeting.

Sponsored by San Francisco Labor Council &

Social Justice & Equality Committee
