    I strongly support the abolition of income inequality. I also fully support a living wage for everyone. A person who works 40 hours per week should be able to make enough to purchase decent food, shelter and clothing. They should be able to afford childcare and be able to accumulate some savings. That is not the reality today. Today many people are working more than one job to make ends meet.

    I strongly believe that income inequality is absolutely hurting this country, and that all workers deserve a wage allowing them basic life necessities.

    I don't have to pretend. My adjusted gross income was 6344.00 for 2015. Hillary work a 12,000.00 suit to a income equality speech. Mocking her attendees. I am solidly with the 99% because I am the 99%.

    I am opposed to all forms of gov't wage laws. And "income inequality" is what happens in a free market society. Gov't should not be allowed to equalize income in the private sector by passing fascist laws.

    A large income inequality occurs when workers do not receive the full value for their labor. All wealth comes from labor, and as such it needs to be labor who gains the lions share of that wealth. It was President Benjamin Harrison (a Republican I might add) who said it best: “I pity the man who wants a coat so cheap that the man or woman who produces the cloth will starve in the process.”

    We must increase the minimum wage to a living wage. Studies consistently show $15/hour allow people working full time to cover their costs of living. If we want people to afford things that publicly funded programs have had to cover, then we must insist on living wages for full time work! http://doe.state.wy.us/lmi/mw/mwreport.htm, http://doe.state.wy.us/lmi/wdreport.pdf, http://www.epi.org/public
