Call to action from "Coalition on Homelessness" and "San Francisco COHSF"
Stop Corporate Welfare!
Stop the Real Estate Scam!
Stop Tenderloin Gentrification!

The Mid-Market payroll tax exemption proposal is all three. Under the guise
of Twitter job retention and area improvement, the City is considering giv-
ing businesses locating in a large swath of the Tenderloin a major tax break.
But the real results will be huge and widespread. Property values will rise,
giving real estate speculators big profits. The new, higher rents will drive out
the poor people of the area along with the nonprofit organizations that serve
them. The tax break continues starving the City’s General Fund, creating ever
larger deficits, leading to more cuts in City jobs and services.
Come tell the Board of Supervisors and Mayor Ed Lee: "This is the wrong development policy for our City!"
