Trump’s Anti-Worker Labor Day

Trump’s Anti-Worker Labor Day

Robert Reich

This will be the first Labor Day of the presidency of Donald J. Trump, who came to office riding a wave of anti-establishment anger from average working people. No one can say they didn’t see it coming.

By the time Trump was elected, the typical American household had a net worth 14 percent lower than the typical household in 1984. The richest 1 percent owned more than the bottom 90 percent.

Can we find out what the 19% (whom Reich tells us believe that “government is being run for the benefit of all”) are smoking ?

It must be some really good stuff.
