Reforming Our Economic System
Workers also contribute to wealth creation -- not only the inventor, entrepeneur or owner of the business. Workers are entitled to a fair share of the wealth they help produce. In recent years, the disproportion between the earnings of CEO's and of their employees has become vaster than ever before. This disproportion does not contribute to a healthy, long-lasting economy. Making sure that workers take home more money, even if the boss takes home a little less, will ensure continuing prospertiy for everyone. We've had long-term prosperity from 1933, when FDR instituted major reforms in our economic system, until now. Obama's reforms, and his creation of healthier, more broad-based domestic markets, will keep our prosperity rolling for many years into the future.
