Widening inequality — an issue that we’ve published on and blogged about in the past — is one of the most serious challenges facing California and our nation. Starting this weekend, a new documentary film on the problem of income inequality opens in more than a dozen communities across the state.
Inequality for All features Robert Reich, professor of public policy at the University of California, Berkeley, and former Secretary of Labor, and takes a look at what has caused the growing economic divide, how inequality has affected the nation’s families, and what policymakers and the public can do about it.
Here’s the trailer:[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=9REdcxfie3M]
