Income Hoarders aka “Job Creators” are the New Robber Barons

Years of increased worker productivity has not been match with increased worker incomes. Instead the benefits of these increases have gone to CEOs and investors making literally modern day Robber Barons. To many corporations, CEOs and investors of more important than their workers and even their products.
Corporations should take care of their own. Yet, at the first sign of a financial crises corporations cut their works and thus production. If corporations were persons it is like cutting their legs off to say energy. It will work temporarily but with dire consequences.
The marked increases in corporate profits with decreased taxes have NOT created more jobs nor increased worker pay but instead shifted income to the top 1% making them the new American aristocracy (“Upper Class”) and 21st Century Robber Barons.
Corporate Boards much take action to reverse these inequities. If they don’t then the government must intervene directly or indirectly.
