How About Equality?

If we are to have a just democracy, there must be economic equality. Economic equality is achieved by addressing the needs of the lowest end of the income scale. The upper end never has trouble fending for itself. In the richest nation in history, we do not have economic equality because there are workers whose full-time income keeps them in poverty, a moral injustice. At present, we’re in an endless loop at the first stage of this flow chart.

A Living Wage law would vastly improve equality. If there is no national healthcare plan or retirement plan, Living Wage must be adequate to pay for these as well.
