    "The support for more equal wealth distribution 'should surprise no one,' said Sam Pizzigati, an Associate Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies and Editor of Too Much, an online weekly on excess and inequality.

    "'Previous research has shown clearly that Americans, given the choice, opt for the much more equitable distribution of wealth in Sweden over the top-heavy distribution we have today in the United States,' he continued.

    "'And keep in mind that no Americans have ever voted for greater inequality,' he said.

    "Of course, policies are not framed to the public as filling the pockets of a select few. 'The rule changes over the past three decades that have so tilted our nation's treasure toward the richest of our rich have all been cloaked as moves that would enrich all Americans, not a special wealthy few,' Pizzigati noted."

    Sam Pizzigati from the Institute for Policy Studies says, “Since the late 1970s we’ve witnessed an assault on the building blocks of greater equality – strong unions, progressive taxes, regulatory limits on business behavior – that has hollowed out the American middle class. Good manufacturing jobs have largely disappeared, outsourced away. Most Americans no longer make things. They provide services.”

     . . . The elite, financing both Republicans and Democrats and successfully getting legislation benefiting the 1%, have their Capitol Hill mouthpieces cry, “Jobs, jobs, jobs.” However, their mutual coziness with globalization actually means, “Lower wages, lower wages, lower wages.”

    Bill Fletcher, Jr. long-time labor activist, and senior scholar with the Institute for Policy Studies recently authored a book titled “They’re Bankrupting Us - And 20 Other Myths About Unions” argues that unions are necessary for democracy and to ensure economic and social justice.

    . . . “We have to build a new labor movement,” Mr. Fletcher explained to The Final Call. “We need a leadership that understands the labor crisis from the ground up—not this top-down module now in existence.”
