Wall Street billionaires have rigged the rules to line their own pockets. Private equity executives and hedge fund billionaires are allowed to destroy our companies without any consequences and walk away richer than ever, all while working people struggle to put food on the table for our families. During the worst public health crisis of our lifetimes, essential workers have been used as pawns. Wealthy CEOs have exploited the distress caused by the pandemic to earn record profits off our backs, while driving many of our companies into bankruptcy.
When reckless billionaires gamble with our economy it’s working families and our communities that pay the price.
The Stop Wall Street Looting Act would reign in the predatory behavior of the private equity firms and hedge funds behind the retail crisis and prioritize workers NOT billionaires.
