When Corporations Say Employees Aren’t Employees

There are loopholes in the laws that allow employers to take advantage of their workers and avoid paying them or giving them benefits that they by rights are owed. As our economy changes in the face of automation, the gig economy, and new corporate employment schemes, we need to focus not just on how employees are treated, but on who counts as an employee at all.

Rich people are not the cause of a robust economy, they are the result of a robust economy. Ron Garret, Patriotic Millionaire and Angel Investor

If you need any proof, just look at the Trump tax bill. Corporations got a $1 trillion tax cut. How much did you get? #DemDebate

No one got rich on their own. No matter how you made your money, you used American roads, American education, and American laws to get there.

As @ewarren says, if you're fabulously rich it's time for you to pay back a little to make sure the next person can get there #DemDebate
