I don't want stuff for free, but can I at least make a living wage? I work 40+ hrs a week and pay $1300/mo rent (not counting utilities). Luckily I don't have a car payment or kids! AND I am still broke as a joke. These big wigs couldn't survive a day in our shoes!

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.

McDonald's worker gets emotional after hearing that CEO Stephen Easterbrook earns $9,200 per hour. "I'm not asking for a mansion. All I'm asking for is to be able to provide better for my son. McDonald's has billions in profit. We need a union."

"30 million people in America have no health insurance and even more are under-insured." - CEOs shouldn't pull the strings of whether of not you have health care. Nurses know --> we need !

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.

We hear all the time from that the economy is booming. What about the millions of workers still struggling just to get by?

Walmart’s CEO Doug McMillon made about $11,000/hour last year. BUT… He thinks Walmart workers don’t deserve to be paid a living wage of $15/hour?!?

Half of workers are part-time. Cynthia Murray, 18 year Walmart employee, says they do this to avoid having to provide benefits like health care and vacation time. Shameful!

Bernie asks workers why $15 fair wage makes sense. Adriana, a McDonald's worker "I'm not asking for a mansion or a lakehouse I'm asking to be able to provide for my son."

The CEO of got a $423 million compensation package (over 4 years) yet employees are living in their cars, struggling to feed their families, and cannot afford the co-pays to get health care. This is unacceptable!

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.

If you work 40 hours a week, you should NOT be living in poverty, you SHOULD be earning at least $15 an hour. RT if you agree.

McDonald's pays a living wage in places like Norway and Finland because workers there have strong unions ✊🏾! They can afford to pay fairly everywhere, but choose to keep their workers in poverty. Period.
