On December 15th at 2pm ET,  People’s Action and the American Economic Liberties Project kicked off of our new virtual event series “Break ‘Em Up! Redistributing Economic Power to the People.” 

The “Break ‘Em Up” series will bring together a diverse range of progressive voices to share information about the ways unchecked corporate power is hurting workers, small businesses, communities and our democracy. It will build on the momentum of the House Antitrust Subcommittee’s 16-month investigation into Big Tech and galvanize the progressive movement around fighting monopoly power.

Economic Liberties and People’s Action’s first event examined how concentrated corporate power hurts labor and workplace organizing efforts. We looked at research that finds wages would likely be substantially higher today – more than $10,000 a year – if the economy were less concentrated. And we’ll hear from leading voices in the anti-monopoly and labor movements.

Thank you for joining us!
