The 10 richest men doubled their fortunes during the pandemic, while the incomes of 99% of the population decreased because of COVID-19.
The pandemic has hurt people living in poverty far more than the rich and has had the worst impacts on women, Black, Indigenous and People of Color, and historically marginalized communities around the world. Meanwhile, billionaires have profited off of the pandemic, continuing to amass wealth amidst global suffering.
Enough is enough. It's time for billionaires to pay their fair share in taxes.
While the average American household paid 14% in federal taxes, America's 25 richest billionaires paid only 3% in income tax between 2014 and 2018. Increased taxes on the wealthiest individuals could lift people out of poverty, address the climate crisis, fund childcare, and create well-paying jobs.
Sign your name and demand that President Biden and Congress address the inequality crisis globally and here at home by making billionaires pay their fair share of taxes.
