    and thus better for corporations to exploit, and easier to demonize unions over.  It's easy to pit worker against worker, all the while the fat cats get fatter and fatter.  

    There needs to be a concerted effort to force wage disparity into the everyday conversation.  

    I think one of the focus points should be on the fact minimum wage is so low, not a living wage that there is little incentive to actually work at a minimum wage job over government benefits.  

    All these politicians are so out of touch - they don't really believe folks are trying to exist on $20,000 a year with no health coverage.  I don't think they literally realize it - they live in a different world and think $250K/yr is middle class.  

    If you're not talking about what billionaire hedgefund bankster Peter G. Peterson is up to you're having the wrong conversations.
