If you’re a billionaire in America today, you probably got a lot richer since the start of the pandemic. Meanwhile, if you’re a fast food worker getting paid the federal minimum wage of $ 7.25 an hour, you have not seen a pay increase in more than a decade. How absurd is that?

At a time of massive income and wealth inequality, when the top 1% owns more wealth than the bottom 92%, and when billionaires have gotten $ 4 TRILLION richer during the pandemic — it is not the billionaire class that needs help today, it is the working class of this country.
