Join us for ‘Inequality For All’ screening and discussion

1240429_551957761507269_819421458_nThe United States has by far the most unequal distribution of income out of all developed countries. The top 1 percent of earners holds more than 35 percent of the nation’s overall wealth, while the bottom 50 percent controls just 2.5 percent.

As inequality has skyrocketed over the past four decades, middle-class incomes have deteriorated. In 1978 , the typical male worker earned $48,302; in 2010, that worker earned just $33,751.

These troubling facts are the basis of “Inequality for All”, a new documentary narrated by UC Berkeley professor and former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich. In the film, Reich helps us understand how the extreme inequality we are now facing has roots in economic and policy changes that began over 30 years ago. The film makes a case for how we got here and where we are headed if we don’t act soon. You can see a trailer for the film here.

On Tuesday, October 15th, 6:30 pm, a screening will be held at Circle Cinema in Tulsa. Tickets for the special screening are available now online or at the Circle Box Office. Immediately following the screening will be a discussion facilitated by OK Policy analyst Gene Perry.

Ticket prices are $9 for the general public, $7 for seniors and military personnel, and $2 for TU students. We hope to see you there!

P.S. If you can’t make it that day, the film will be showing at Circle Cinema from Friday, October 11th through at least Thursday, October 17th. Showtimes will be posted here.


Gene Perry worked for OK Policy from 2011 to 2019. He is a native Oklahoman and a citizen of the Cherokee Nation. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a B.A. in history and an M.A. in journalism.
