"House Speaker John Boehner says raising the minimum wage is 'bad policy' because it will cause job losses," writes economist Robert Reich in a recent blog post. "The U.S. Chamber of Commerce says a minimum wage increase would be a job killer.

"Republicans and the Chamber also say unions are job killers, workplace safety regulations are job killers, environmental regulations are job killers, and the Affordable Care Act is a job killer.

"Most of this is bunk."

Reich argues in his award-winning film Inequality for All that the shrinking middle class and the growing ranks of the poor are not the only casualties of economic inequality. It also undermines the foundations of American democracy.

The Columbus Film Council is screening Inequality for All on Saturday, April 12 at 3 p.m. at the Studio 35 Cinema and Draft House, 3055 Indianola Avenue in Columbus. Doors open at 2:30. Admission is free. Donations are appreciated.

The event is co-sponsored by Clintonville for Change and Northwest Area Progressives. This screening is also made possible with support from the Ohio Arts Council and the Greater Columbus Arts Council.

Robert Reich was U.S. Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration. He is currently Professor of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley, and Senior Fellow at the Blum Center for Developing Economies.
