40 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. died so all of us could have human dignity and equality here in America. He died to bridge the divide between the rich and the poor. He died so white and black could all come together, so we could all have human dignity. He understood that economic rights were at the core of the fabric of human dignity.
As we fast forward to the 21st century, multi-billionaire wall street tycoons like Henry Kravis and companies like KKR are causing that dream to become a nightmare.
