Robert Reich’s new documentary explains why America’s widening income gap is a threat — not only to the viability of our workforce — but also to the foundations of our democracy. Inequality for All opens in theaters across the country on Sept. 27, 2013.
The film, directed by Jacob Kornbluth, features Reich — an economic analyst and former Clinton cabinet member — who uses humor and facts to explain why the consolidation of wealth into the hands of few affects all Americans today.

What’s happening to the American middle class, and why do we care?
Higher living costs, combined with stagnating wages, explain why the middle class is working harder and harder and harder and going nowhere fast.
