CEOs are a no show! 😡 The median Amazon employee earns $28,000 in a year. Jeff Bezos makes more than that in 10 SECONDS. If Bezos shared even half of his wealth with his 566,000 employees, they'd each get $231,449.

It’s appalling that the ratio of CEO to average worker pay is higher in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world. Corporations don’t need more tax cuts that they can spend on stock buybacks and executive pay. They need to start investing in the workers.

In the past forty years, CEO pay has skyrocketed while worker pay has barely budged when adjusting for inflation. Strong unions, raising the minimum wage, and expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit will help us begin to solve our historic challenge of inequality.

Paying poverty wages is a choice. McDonald's does everything to keep profits high and wages low because politicians allow them to. TODAY McDonald's pays $15 in San Francisco, but $7.25 in 21 states.
