6 years ago today I raised my company's min wage to $70k. Fox News called me a socialist whose employees would be on bread lines. Since then our revenue tripled, we're a Harvard Business School case study & our employees had a 10x boom in homes bought. Always invest in people.

One year under a "socialist" president and Congress: *Stock market is up 13% to a record high *Billionaire wealth is up 25% to a record high *Corporate profit is up 18% to a record high *Taxes on the wealthy/big businesses unchanged Almost like the rich do well no matter what.

Who would have thought you could avoid mass resignations with a decent minimum wage, free health care, guaranteed paid parental leave, mandated paid vacations, guaranteed paid sick leave, affordable child care, union protections and regulations on company greed

Billionaires make up 0.0002% of Americans. Before Citizens United, they made 1% of all campaign donations. Now it's 10%. Billionaires also pay the lowest tax rate of any group. Tax rates and loopholes are set by Congress.

Billionaire campaign donations per election Before Citizens United: $31 million Now: $1.2 billion Citizens United was 12 years ago today. It is the Patient Zero for most of our modern problems.

"money doesn't buy happiness" is something only a rich person would say. An extra million won't do anything for a rich person. But for people in poverty, money is the greatest anti-depressant in the world.

Corporate stock buybacks have hit a record high and are up 29% from pre-pandemic levels. Next time you hear a company say they are "forced" to raise prices, remember they are using most of their cash to enrich execs and shareholders.

Just to recap: We spend $750 billion a year on the Military to "bring democracy" to other countries but we can't pass a bill to make it easier for Americans to vote here.

bizarre how workers quitting for higher wages are called "disloyal" but companies laying off workers for higher profits are called "good business people"

Proctor & Gamble (which sells Charmin, Pampers, Old Spice, etc) rose prices like everyone else. Its profit grew 9% to $4.2 billion just for the last quarter. We do not have just an inflation problem. We have a record-corporate-profits problem.

"paid parental leave? we can't afford it," D.C. says while keeping a $180 billion tax loophole that exclusively benefits hedge fund and private equity managers (*unrelated, private equity has contributed $600 million to Congress over the last decade.)

During the pandemic billionaire wealth has gone up 73% while job numbers have fallen to recession levels. I never want to hear again that the rich are "job creators."

I can’t stop thinking about how we incarcerate more than any other country while claiming we can’t afford to give basic care, educational opportunities, housing / proper nutrition safety, and medical care for kids and families. This is so backwards. You should invest in people.
