TED and Joe

June 28, 2020 @ 10:00 AM 11:00 AM

Nancy Prial will lead a discussion on the Ted talk by Nick Hanauer, entitled Beware, Fellow Plutocrats, the Pitchforks are Coming.  The talk was given in August of 2014 and lasts 20:27 min.
 
Nick Hanauer is a rich guy, an unrepentant capitalist — and he has something to say to his fellow plutocrats: Wake up!  Growing inequality is about to push our societies into conditions resembling pre-revolutionary France.  Hear his argument about why a dramatic increase in minimum wage could grow the middle class, deliver economic prosperity … and prevent a revolution.
