The biggest business con of 2019: fleecing workers while bosses get rich

Inequality Media with Robert Reich
The top 1% of America holds 40% of the wealth. It's time the public understands how this happened and what we can do about it.
Our ultimate vision is a United States where active participation by informed citizens restores the balance of power in our Democracy and creates an economy where gains are widely shared.

Myth of Minority Hiring Quotas

Are corporations in America required to hire a certain amount of minority employees and are there repercussions if this is not done?
— “In the United States, there are laws and regulations aimed at promoting equal employment opportunities for minority groups. However, there is no specific federal requirement for corporations to hire a certain number or percentage of minority employees. Instead, the focus is on preventing discrimination in the hiring process and ensuring that all individuals have an equal opportunity to compete for available positions. Repercussions for not adhering to anti-discrimination laws can include legal action, fines, and damage to a company's reputation. Additionally, some government contracts and programs may have specific requirements related to diversity and inclusion. It's important for corporations to be aware of and comply with these laws and regulations to foster a diverse and inclusive work environment.”
