The legacy of slavery continues to have effects on wealth, incarceration rates, access to education, health care, and housing for Black people through racist systems today. HR 40 can address this urgent need for accountability and repair.

@MollyJongFast  @val_demingsHey  Marco, you should read @hmcghee  ‘s great book “The Sum of Us” about the wealth gap in America. It costs our economy trillions of dollars. Maybe work on that instead.

I’m moving $1B of my Square equity (~28% of my wealth) to #startsmall  LLC to fund global COVID-19 relief. After we disarm this pandemic, the focus will shift to girl’s health and education, and UBI. It will operate transparently, all flows tracked here:

Walton family wealth in 2018: $146 billion Walton family wealth in 2021: $228 billion Walmart minimum wage in 2018: $11 an hour Walmart minimum wage in 2021: $11 an hour It is a moral outrage that the richest family in America pays workers at Walmart starvation wages.

I will never accept a system that enables billionaires to add $1,100,000,000,000 to their wealth during a pandemic but doesn’t raise the $7.25 minimum wage for over a decade. Tax the rich. Raise the wage. Now.

Joe Biden will inherit from Trump: The worst economy since the Great Depression, the worst public health crisis in 100 years, massive wealth inequality, the existential threat of climate change, a racist immigration system. These unprecedented crises demand unprecedented action.

In other news, America's billionaires could give everybody in the country a $3,000 stimulus check and still be richer than they were before the pandemic. It's past time for a wealth tax.

Wealth of Elon Musk on March 18, 2020: $24.5 billion Wealth of Elon Musk on January 9, 2021: $209 billion U.S. minimum wage in 2009: $7.25 an hour U.S. minimum wage in 2021: $7.25 an hour Our job: Raise the minimum wage to at least $15, tax the rich & create an economy for all.

Jeff Bezos could give every Amazon employee $105,000 and still be as rich as he was before the pandemic. If that doesn't convince you we need a wealth tax, I'm not sure what will.

I refuse to tolerate a system that lets billionaires add $792,000,000,000 to their wealth during a pandemic but doesn’t raise the $7.25 minimum wage for over a decade.

The fact that Jeff Bezos increased his wealth by $13 billion in 1 day during a pandemic, while his employees struggle to make ends meet and 50 million Americans are filing for unemployment, tells you a great deal about how our economy is rigged in favor of the billionaire class.

What a hypocrite. Elon Musk has received billions in corporate welfare from U.S. taxpayers. Now he wants to stop 30 million Americans who lost jobs from receiving $600 a week in unemployment benefits, while his wealth has gone up by $46.7 billion over the past 4 months. Pathetic.
