Indeed. For a discussion on why we need this, and how much the wage inequality issue damages the very principles of democracy, please also view, for instance, Wealth Inequality in America: Infographics on the distribution of wealth in America: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPKKQnijnsM www.pinterest.com/pin/533958099546351520/
YES! Employers don't want to pay US a living wage so they encourage immigration to those they CAN exploit! Such immigrants can still make a better life here at low wages than what they had 'back home.' Meanwhile, the majority of workers struggle on just $8.50/hour before taxes. Me? I am one of these 'working poor' US citizens, and now have 3 PT jobs and still can't save for a decent car or modest home! Live month-to-month.
