The average income in the US (total income per worker) is $127,000 per year. That is more than what 97% of all workers make.
That is the problem: inequality. When 97% of the workforce make a below average income, there is a problem with the economic system!
Capitalism is a system of inequality: unequal income and unequal power. It is the opposite of democracy.
Capitalism should be replaced with democracy so that society works well for the other 97%.
Democracy is a system where power rests with everyone equally. Equal power means equal votes, equal treatment under the law, equal ownership in the economy, and equal pay for equal effort.
Democracy is the only rational and humane way to organize society.
