U.S. income inequality is now the highest since 1928. The pope, the president, economists and even business leaders all agree: income inequality in our country has grown to a level that is devastating our families, our economy and our businesses.
Walmart exemplifies the problems created by income inequality in this country. The Walton family, which owns the majority of Walmart, is growing its $149 billion in wealth while on average, a Walmart associate makes only $16K a year. Workers are asking for $15 an hour and consistent full- time hours.
