Trickle down never happens because the lion's share of profits from increased production stays in the 1% pockets, never to be used for jobs, especially jobs that mean anything for the actual benefit of the American Worker.
Rather, the money is kept for stock buybacks for Executives and Investors to increase their already too large share. (Dr. Richard Wolff explains this very effectively)
The rest is spent, as Mary Bottari reveals, actively working to further Disenfranchise the American Worker (read : the 99%) through destruction of Unions, nationwide.
When the 40 hour week is but a memory, and Child Labor Laws become quaint artifacts of a more Civilized time, the American Worker will have only these Tax Avoiding, Democracy Undermining Voices of our Captured Media left to listen to, Misdirecting and Pointing Towards the most beaten down of us as Villains (...they don't want to work, and they take all our resources...), as the reasons why times are so tough.
