CEOs vs. Workers: Sen. Sanders Town Hall

While corporate CEOs are raking in record profits, the employees working for those companies are struggling to make ends meet, facing stagnant wages and executives who refuse to endorse a living wage and workers' right to collective bargaining. In light of the recent Supreme Court decision further weakening the power of public-sector unions, it's time to lift up the voices of those most impacted by corporate greed and economic inequality. For this national town hall, filmed live at the U.S. Capitol Visitor's Center on July 16, Sen. Sanders invited workers from Disneyland, McDonald's, American Airlines, Walmart, and Amazon to share their story and struggle with a nationwide audience. The Senator also invited the CEOs of each of the companies represented by workers — though none of them accepted the invitation, leaving only empty chairs alongside to face their employees on stage.
