About a month ago President Obama took the podium in a couple small Midwestern towns and said that the “growing inequality” in America “isn’t just morally wrong, it’s bad economics.” He pledged to spend the rest of his term trying to right that situation and we wish him the best in that endeavor. The elevator to the American Dream has gotten so top heavy lately that for millions locked in the basement there’s no way up without a shiv. So for the Los Angeles area fast food workers walking out today, we quote Ralph Ellison who said “the truth is the light and light is the truth.” Godspeed. You have a posse.
