On Monday, socialist millionaire Bernie Sanders criticized Disney CEO Bob Iger’s earnings and suggested the company should give all its employees big raises due to the huge profits being raked in by the new movie “Avengers: Endgame.”
What would be truly heroic is if Disney used its profits from Avengers to pay all of its workers a middle class wage, instead of paying its CEO Bob Iger $65.6 million – over 1,400 times as much as the average worker at Disney makes. https://t.co/NrcFSk4LZc

On Sunday, Disney announced that in just five days, the movie has pulverized box-office records, taking in at that point in excess of $1.2 billion.
Of course, it’s always an easy call for politicians to point fingers and demand that others do “the right thing.”
Surely, it’s easy for politicians to do if greedy capitalism isn’t their bag. You would have to expect exemplary, compassionate, charitable behaviors from a lifelong socialist politician, right? …
Spread the wealth, lift up the downtrodden, etc.
Oh, but wait … this month, Bernie and his wife released their tax returns which showed he gave a mere 3 percent of their surprisingly large income to charity in 2017. Just as weird, the most famous American Marxist recently talked about his success as a best-selling author and the fact that he is a millionaire … and in doing so, he actually endorsed the decidedly un-Marxist, pro-capitalist concept of coming up with a product idea, selling it to a lot of willing buyers, and getting rich … and apparently NOT sharing the wealth with others.
Drat … still looking for a leftist politician who practices what he preaches.
Bernie, please lead by example and start by giving back that pile of $ you made from those books to the average workers who shipped & sold those books at Amazon & Barnes & Noble. https://t.co/1bExo8YRiI

Bernie Sanders demands that Disney spread avengers endgame profits to employees and not the CEO —
…….doesn’t this mean Bernie should spread his book sales to the masses and not the author?

Why don’t you share your money with me? I did not buy your book but if you give me some I may buy it to use for starting my wood stove.

Why don’t you lead by example and donate your book proceeds to help those with College Debt. You can also use your speaking engagement income to help those whom are hungry. https://t.co/oBZFjzVy9e

Here’s an interesting point that reflects one of the major flaws in the socialist “tax the hell out of the top 1 percent” movement …
If Bob Iger made $0, workers would only get $26 more per month…

A person’s labor is worth whatever another person who needs or wants it and the person providing the labor agree it’s worth. Leftists can’t stand this simple but true dynamic.

Whether Iger makes nothing or 2X what he’s paid now has nothing to do with what anyone else is paid.
