Sustainable Staten Island will be hosting a workshop based on Runaway Inequality by Les Leopold.

In the world working people inhabit, our infrastructure is collapsing, our schools are laying off teachers, our drinking water is barely potable, our cities are facing bankruptcy, and our public and private pension funds are nearing collapse. We – consumers, students, and homeowners – are loaded with crushing debt, but our real wages haven’t risen since the 1970s.

How can we be so rich and still have such poor services, so much debt, and such stagnant incomes? The answer: runaway inequality – the ever-increasing gap in income and wealth between the super-rich and the rest of us.

This workshop introduces attendees to the concepts in the book and begins to explore ideas on how we can network together against it. The workshop is Free and is a great way to network with others in the Staten Island community.
