The Democratic Club of Sunnyvale and the Santa Clara County Human Relations Commision are hosting a special free screening of Inequality for All, the award winning film by Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor. This movie is a humorous and enlightening expose on America's widening income gap - something that’s been getting worse and worse for over 30 years.
About the film:
The 400 richest Americans now own more wealth than the bottom 150 million combined. Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich sees this disparity as a threat to democracy. INEQUALITY FOR ALL explains why.
There is no vilifying of the rich here. Instead, INEQUALITY FOR ALL investigates how policy changes have stacked the deck against the middle class.With Prof. Reich as our guide, INEQUALITY FOR ALL looks at how those policy changes threaten an economy dependent on middle class spending.
The film interweaves economic theory and Reich’s explanations with real-world stories of people from across the economic spectrum. These stories help Reich – and the audience – connect the dots between the strength of the middle class and the strength of America.
