I’m not any more altruistic than the next guy, I’m just greedy for a different kind of country than most other rich people. I want to be a rich man in a rich country.

Patriotic Millionaires

Proud “traitors to their class,” members of the Patriotic Millionaires are high-net worth Americans, business leaders, and investors who are united in their concern about the destabilizing concentration of wealth and power in America. The mission of The Patriotic Millionaires organization is to build a more stable, prosperous, and inclusive nation by promoting public policies based on the “first principles” of equal political representation, a guaranteed living wage for all working citizens, and a fair tax system: 1. All citizens should enjoy political power equal to that enjoyed by millionaires; 2. All citizens who work full time should be able to afford their basic needs; 3. Tax receipts from millionaires, billionaires and corporations should comprise a greater proportion of federal tax receipts.

Family businesses make up the beating heart of America. But when the “family business” is wielding unfathomable wealth to influence our democracy, it becomes a problem.

In this week's Closer Look, the team at Patriotic Millionaires examine the rise of wealth consolidation by billionaire families as America enters a Second Gilded Age.

Mickey's joining the union!

Huge congrats to the Disneyland character workers who've just voted to join the AEA (Actors’ Equity Association). The move will help them better advocate for improvements in safety and scheduling and their quest for a living wage.

Organizing effectively is the best way to protect workers from corporations that care more about their shareholders than their employees.
