Owner of Yuengling Brewery Talks Unions and Taxes

The head of the Pennsylvania-based mega-brewery D.G. Yuengling and Son I is calling Governor Tom Corbett ``a great man'' who's trying to do the right thing.
Company president and owner Dick Yuengling told the Pennsylvania Press Club on Monday he hopes the state will adopt a right-to-work policy for union representation and reduce the capital stock and franchise tax.
He says Corbett's office contacted him ``right away'' after he was quoted saying the Pottsville-based company might build its next brewery in another state. Yuengling says he's not worth a billion dollars, despite his inclusion earlier this year on a Forbes magazine list of billionaires.
He says no one's going to offer him a billion dollars for the company, but even if they did, he wouldn't take it.
