Hedge Fund Billionaires vs. Kindergarten Teachers: Whose side are you on?

Posted on 14 Sep, 15 by Max Bowe

Did you know that the top 25 hedge fund managers in the United States make more than every single kindergarten teacher in the country—combined?

There are a lot of reasons that the math shakes out so unfairly, but one of them is the carried-interest loophole, a tax law that essentially gives these one-percenters a much lower tax rate than they should be paying.

This issue is at the heart of director & president of Brave New Films, Robert Greenwald's new short film, “Hedgefunds Billionaires vs. Kindergarten Teachers: Whose side are you on?”. You can watch it below.

After watching Robert's short film, be sure to check out footage from our event on September 10 which features a discussion with Mayor de Blasio, Robert Greenwald, moderator Lynne Paramore, and NYC Kindergarten teacher Lena Lombardi.
