“Corporate profits are now at an all-time high, while wages as a percent of the economy are at an all-time low, and fewer Americans are employed than at any time in the previous three decades.”* (Read more at Alternet). Corporations continue to enrich the 1% by siphoning off the profits of their hard workers, laying off others, and leaving crummy low-wage jobs for everyone else.
Our economy needs more money in the hands of consumers, not more tax cuts for the rich. The 1% Economics playbook just doesn’t work for the rest of us
Working people should be able to live and support their families off of their wages. We need to tell our elected officials that the 99% need a raise. Our elected officials need to hear from us and know that we will not stand by an economy that only works for the richest 1%. Take action and help support the fight for livable wages.
