‘Inequality for All’ screenings announced

By Staff | Jan 6, 2014

The Robert C. Byrd Center for Legislative Studies will screen Jacob Kornbluth’s award-wining documentary film, Inequality for All at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 28 and at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 30.

Winner of the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and billed as “an Inconvenient Truth for the economy,” Inequality for All profiles Robert Reich, Professor of Public Policy, best-selling author, and former Secretary of Labor for the Clinton Administration, as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. Using humor and a wide array of facts, Reich explains how the consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself.

Inequality for All is a passionate argument on behalf of the middle class. The film shows why dealing with the widening gap between the rich and everyone else is not just about moral fairness and provides viewers with a deeper sense of the issue and what can be done about it.

Inequality for All is a must see film for anyone interested in the larger economic imperatives impacting America today.

The event will take place in the Robert C. Byrd Center for Legislative Studies auditorium at 213 N. King St. on the campus of Shepherd University in Shepherdstown. A question and answer session will follow the film. Admission to both screenings is free and open to the public. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
