"Even before the Great Recession, working Americans faced stagnant wages and were not benefiting from economic growth-the result of widening income inequality. What's more, there's growing evidence, including research by EPI, that income inequality is not the result of abstract, unstoppable economic trends. Instead, inequality was created by government policies supported by, and to the benefit of, those with the most power and wealth. The upshot of this is that people, together, can reverse these trends by mobilizing around policies that generate shared prosperity.'
