John Oliver on Tech Monopolies

Big Tech monopolies from Amazon to Facebook to Twitter have too much power over our economy and the fate of our democracy. Their contributions to a growing amount of right-wing conspiracies and work to undermine unionization efforts are just two examples of a growing problem.

In this critical moment where Big Tech giants are violating our rights and undermining our democracy, our elected officials have an obligation to protect our country’s core democratic principles.

So, with the Senate ready to vote on two antitrust bills S. 2992 and S. 2710 we need you to tell them why truly meaningful antitrust reform is needed to rein in Big Tech’s power!

Strong antitrust laws are crucial for us to protect ourselves from increasing concentrated corporate power.

The monopoly power that Big Tech has damages democracy, leads to lower wages for workers, and increases inequality. It’s clear we need to break the growing and dangerous power of Big Tech.

Together, these two sets of bills will prohibit large corporations from giving preference to their own products on their platform, stop them from unfairly limiting the availability of competing products from another business, and prohibit companies from requiring other developers to use their own in-app payment systems.

With momentum to take on Big Tech monopolies building, now is the time to write your elected officials and tell them to pass antitrust reform legislation to stop Big Tech from dominating our lives.

At a time when Big Tech giants are putting their interests before our rights and democracy, your action is critical. Thank you.
