Higher fair wages means more spending and an increased wide-spread economy…not just those few at the top making obscene undeserved salaries while others struggle just to survive!
What we need, and must fight-for, is 'An economy for the 99 percent’ - "the gap between rich and poor is far greater than had been feared. It details how big business and the super-rich are fuelling the inequality crisis by dodging taxes, driving down wages and using their power to influence politics. (The OXFAM report) calls for a fundamental change_ in the way we manage our economies so that they work for all people, and not just a fortunate few._
“Eight men own the same wealth as the 3.6 billion people who make up the poorest half of humanity” They are the people - the ruling class 1% the ginger pig & co represents, using racism, division, corrupt politicians, the “justice” system, tax system skewed toward vast wealth over many decades, duopoly electoral control/corruption and police state to maintain the wealth and political power of the few!
“It is obscene for so much wealth to be held in the hands of so few when 1 in 10 people survive on less than $2 a day. Inequality is trapping hundreds of millions in poverty; it is fracturing our societies and undermining democracy."
The central political message of Bernie Sanders is this, IMO - change on many political and social fronts for the 99% must be predicated by “radical” economic change and egalitarian opportunity to enable/empower the people to engage and demand…
