Summary
"Did you know that the four richest Americans have as much wealth as the 128 million poorest Americans combined? And that in many US companies, the CEO earns about 340 times more than the rank-and-file employee? Statistics like these tell the story of economic inequality in dollars and cents, but in the everyday world, the numbers translate into hardship. Millions of Americans don't earn enough money to pay for decent housing, food, health care, and education. Increasingly, families and young people aren't doing better than their parents and grandparents before them. In fact, they're doing worse. And women and minorities earn less than white men. The American Dream is harder to achieve than ever before. Meanwhile, the rich keep getting richer. Many Americans are angry about economic inequality, and many are working on solutions. Readers will learn how state and local governments, businesses, and ordinary citizens--including young people--are fighting to close the gap between rich and poor, to preserve the promises of American democracy, and to give everyone a fair shot at the American Dream."--Dust jacket
