Income Inequality is Hurting Arkansas, February 2014

The gap between the rich and poor in Arkansas is growing,
and it is hurting all of us. Increasing inequality in Arkansas
holds back economic growth, damages the democratic
process, and keeps many low income and minority families
stuck in poverty. But it can be fixed. Arkansas will be a
stronger state if we correct an unfair tax system that primarily
benefits the wealthy, and invest in our workers with
programs that increase mobility like unemployment insurance
and an increased minimum wage.
