Wealth Inequality in America

 

Over the past three decades, American companies have gone from below average profits to the highest in history, meanwhile paying the lowest employee salaries on record, both as a percentage of the overall economy.  Make no mistake, business is booming, but 90% of this country isn’t reaping any of the benefits [Source].

Income inequality is the central issue facing America today.  There is nothing more crucial to our future success and security; not the deficit, not gun violence, not the environment, not unemployment, nothing.

Sever the ties between our government and big business, and you deliver this problem a devastating blow that frees up politicians to pass legislation that benefits the majority rather than the minority.  It is that simple.
