Help Expose Privatizers & Profiteers Selling Out Our Democracy

Portal: Center for Media and Democracy’s Outsourcing America Exposed:

When Wall Street collapsed the economy in 2008, one company eager to buy public assets from cash-strapped governments proclaimed, “Desperate governments are our best customer!” Across the country, for-profit companies are engaged in a hostile takeover of our schools, roads, prisons, drinking water, and even government itself. CMD’s “Outsourcing America Exposed” project will give taxpayers the tools they need to identify these privatizers and profiteers, their eye-popping salaries, the “fine print follies” contained in their contracts that put taxpayers on the hook — even for work not done — and how taxpayers can take back control of public assets and public service.

The first corporation CMD has exposed on this portal is Sodexo. Also, Corrections Corp. of America, and GEO Group.
