Unfettered capitalism is CEO compensation skyrocketing by 940% since 1978 while the typical worker’s pay has inched up by just 12%.
This is not what America is supposed to be about. We must put an end to rampant inequality and finally create an economy which works for all of us.

If McDonald’s can afford to pay its CEO over $ 10 million in compensation and spend billions on stock buybacks to award its wealthy shareholders and executives, you know what? It can afford to pay all of its workers at least $ 15 an hour. I’m proud to support the workers on strike. pic.twitter.com/XodhxFksbc
