And this admission of truth was posted by a Republican congressman. Salary comparison. This doesn’t even fully cover the disparity between the worker and the cost of things, and how it requires more work hours and more than one working person to have the equivalence of the single eight-hour-day paycheck buying power of a 1965 worker.
“1965: Worker: $39,500 CEO: $819,000 Ratio: 1 to 20
2013: Worker: $52,100 CEO: $15,175,000 Ratio: 1 to 295
Working class wages have stagnated for the past 40 years. CEO salaries and bonuses continually increase.”
Maybe it’s time for all new faces in the halls of Congress across this nation who understand this disparity from the workers’ perspective, and actually intend to do something legislatively about it? Something other than giving billionaires and their retiring political party members a tax break disguised as #maga for the people? Honestly, they could have invested into the workers a long time ago, if they had ever really wanted to!

Honestly, the billionaires and retiring politicians could have invested into the workers of the United States a long time ago, if they had ever really wanted to! It’s been no secret, this wealth transfer. Maybe it’s time for all new faces in the halls of Congress across this nation who understand this disparity from the workers’ perspective, and actually intend to do something legislatively about it?
“Don’t be afraid to argue with me, or tell me when I am wrong*. I won’t tell you how many degrees I have, how many languages I speak, how many years of schooling I’ve been immersed in, and how many books I’ve written. Why? Because, I’m confident in my shared statements, alone! And, if I’m proven wrong on a thing or two, then that is learning! I will adjust my views, and with great appreciation for the unexpected schooling. Alright, I’ve given my say.
