Where the presidential candidates stand on economic inequality

By AFSCME Staff ·

“Polarization of Wealth” is the first installment in the “Union 411: 2020 Election Special,” a series of short videos shining a light on the issues that define the differences between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. In this video, Secretary-Treasurer Elissa McBride explores rising economic inequality across America and what’s at stake for AFSCME members and other working people as we count down to Election Day. McBride takes a look at how the last four years have made these inequalities worse and explains why we need leaders who will level the playing field, unrig the system, and make sure that everyone can earn a living wage, have decent housing and take care of their families. Before you vote, see where the candidates for president stand on the issues that matter to you, your family and your community.
