Another week has gone by, and as expected, Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Tom Wolf released another video.
This latest web video, entitled “Profit Sharing,” focuses on Wolf’s company and its 20% to 30% profit sharing model. The video features workers and associates who speak to Wolf’s business sense and kindness.
“What better way to say to somebody, ‘We want you to act like an owner of this business,’ than to give you a share of the profits,” said Dave Confer, Vice Chairman, Secretary and General Counsel at the Wolf Organization
Cindi Kelly, an employee, said, “I think if you were to talk to my children today, they would remember the cruise they were taken on for the first time and know that it came from Mom’s profit-sharing at Wolf.”
Wolf echoes many of the sentiments that he captured in his latest television ad, which discussed his ability to treat his employees with respect while simultaneously building a profitable business.
“To the extent that any community has strong, middle-class jobs and a strong middle-class, it is a healthy community,” Wolf says. “When you have a community that is losing middle-class jobs, you have a community that is losing its vibrancy and its economic health. And I think Pennsylvania, like every other state, has to do everything in its power to make sure that we are building the middle-class and not destroying it.”
Earlier in the month, Wolf released an ad that denounced Governor Corbett’s budget proposal, calling many of the initiatives — or lack there of — “unacceptable.”
His first television ad featured the tagline, “I’m Tom Wolf and I’ll be a different kind of governor.”
In late December of last year Wolf released his first web video, “Made in Pennsylvania” — a promise to bring more manufacturing jobs back to the state if elected.
Wolf faces State Treasurer Rob McCord, former DEP Secretaries Katie McGinty and John Hanger, Rep. Allyson Schwartz, pastor Max Myers and Lebanon County Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz in the Democratic primary for governor.
