The American Fair Compensation Campaign is a non-partisan, national, grassroots campaign to re-establish the middle-class in America. While there are many contributing factors to the decline of the middle-class in America, if we want to point to the one MAIN factor we must point to GREED.
Let’s be very clear. There is only ONE thing that raises costs of everything: COMPENSATION.
UNFAIR COMPENSATION – otherwise known as GREED – unfairly raises the cost of living for everyone.
Mother Earth has NEVER charged for anything. All oil, natural gas, copper, gold, diamonds, coal, sunshine, wind, earth (soil), fire, water, trees (wood), fruits and vegetables, fish, and animals, etc., etc., are all provided FREE by Mother Earth.
The ONLY costs are for compensation to humans to gather/harvest, process, and distribute these commodities. This compensation can be fair (ungreedy) or unfair (GREEDY).
When you hear that utility rates are going to increase, or that the price per gallon of gas at the local gas station increases, it is due ONLY to increasing the compensation of those involved in the production, distribution, and administration of electricity or gas. The gas and oil are provided free by Mother Nature. Humans charge money as their compensation to drill for, process and distribute their essential energy products and services.
Unfair compensation (GREED) for these services unfairly raises the costs for these products and services. The cost or price for these products and services couldremain unchanged IF those that work within that product’s supply-chain did NOT arbitrarily raise their compensation (also known as “profit”).
In the same way when you see that food prices increase, or health insurance prices increase, or your mobile phone bill goes up, or your cable TV bill increased, or your auto insurance goes up, or your tuition goes up, or the cost of clothes increases, or your rent goes up, it is ALL – in EVERY single case – due ONLY to raises in the compensation of people involved. This applies to every single product or service which we pay for.
All people are paid money, in the form of wages, salary, or fees, etc., because they are providing (selling) a product or service. When a person or company charges a price for the product or service that allows them to receive or pay themselves an UNFAIR compensation – more than what 90% of Americans earn ($100K per year or less) – they are OVERCHARGING for the product or service and it unfairly raises the cost of those products or services for everyone else.
MARTIN SHKRELI, he acquired the U.S. rights to a lifesaving drug and promptly boosted its price over 5,000 percent, from $13.50 a tablet to $750.
Wall St is the handmaiden of GREEDY people.
Every company that “goes public” is hiring Wall St to make sure that whatever product or service their “public” company sells…to the public, is priced as high as it can possibly be priced to generate the highest profit possible for the “public” company’s stockholders.
That is why pharmaceuticals are OVERPRICED.
That is why gasoline is OVERPRICED.
That is why electricity is OVERPRICED.
That is why natural gas is OVERPRICED.
That is why food is OVERPRICED.
