Businesses making profits but workers aren’t benefiting

What’s wrong with our cultural ethics here? Higher profits, yet workers aren’t sharing in it. Wages and salaries are at a low point as a fraction of gross domestic product.

We need a political change, since the party of NO won’t agree to higher taxes on dividends, capital gains, or corporations which could pay for a massive jobs program for green energy and infrastructure (which would help the entire economy). What does the party of NO care about high unemployment, anyway, as long as their corporate masters are getting richer? They seem indifferent to human suffering and poverty as well.

Retired former engineer and (later) clinical social worker. Married, with two adult children. Long time student of spirituality and "A Course in Miracles." Presently alarmed at how the U.S. economic system, with all of its strengths, is poisoning our society, world economic fairness and the biosphere upon which we rely for physical life itself. I have thus helped form an economic reform study-advocacy group.
