Scott Wagner is the same Republican candidate who has refused to release his tax returns because he doesn’t want his employees to join a union because they see how wealthy he is.
Scott Wagner, owner of Penn Waste, and GOP candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania is probably the perfect representation of a modern Republican. He doesn’t want to release his tax returns because he doesn’t want his employees to consider joining a union. He doesn’t want his workers to make more money, because he wants to keep that money for himself.
In addition to being the GOP’s pick to run for governor, Wagner — a state senator — is the owner of Penn Waste Inc., which is a non-union company. As of this writing, Wagner has refused to release his tax returns to allow voters to see how much he makes and what percentage of his income he pays in taxes.
While Wagner declined to state a reason for keeping his tax returns secret during the primary, he finally divulged why his tax documents have been kept from the public at a town hall in Erie, Pennsylvania earlier this week: If his workers knew how much he made, they would form a union.
“If I disclose those tax returns, union representatives get a hold of my tax returns, go around to my employees’ homes at night and say, ‘Hey Mrs. Jones, how much does your husband make?’ She goes, ‘Well he makes this.’ ‘Well this guy makes a lot more,’ ” Wagner said.
This is the modern Republican party: greedy and entitled, and willing to stoop to any possible level of depravity to get and hold on to power.
