Burger King’s Tim Hortons Deal Sparks Plans to Boycott

Burger King’s deal to abandon its home and bring the company over to Canada has ignited cries to boycott the beloved fast-food chain. Senator Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, is pioneering the movement.

Since BK’s announcement to move its headquarters to Canada and merge with the Canadian coffee and doughnut chain, Tim Hortons, Sen. Brown released a statement Monday calling for all consumers to snub the home of the mighty Whopper.

“Burger King’s decision to abandon the United States means consumers should turn to Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers or White Castle sliders,” Brown said in the press release. “Burger King has always said ‘Have It Your Way’; well my way is to support two Ohio companies that haven’t abandoned their country or customers.” Both Wendy’s and White Castle headquarters are based in Ohio.

Burger King is the next company in line dodging U.S. corporate taxes. According to The Huffington Post, this deal will enable BK to evade America’s 35% corporate tax rate and therefore adhere to Canada’s significantly lower rate, at about 15%.

Brown wasn’t the only politician to try and punish the Burger King/Tim Horton deal and others like it. According to Fox News, the Obama administration may take steps to discourage future inversions from happening.

Would you boycott Burger King for trying to dodge paying taxes in the U.S.?
