About This Collection


The equality of inequality is that it affects just about everyone. Whether it be education, health, racial or social, these types of disparities are all driven by one thing...economics. 2016 has had its shares of ups, downs and everything in between with one certainty: the income and wealth gap of the middle class. It is both shrinking and growing - the middle of the middle class is dividing and moving towards the upper and lower income tiers as most evident in metropolitan areas (Pew Research Center; May 12, 2016). This past year also saw the rise of the minimum wage to $15 in at least 16 states but the #FightFor15 movement continues for tens of thousands of workers across the U.S. In the uncertainty of the next four years for the labor market, they "won't back down" in the name of economic and racial justice.

In January, WORLD Channel will be showcasing stories of the fight for economic EQUALITY, and how the changing local, national, and international economics affect the social structures of how we live. Featured series programming includes America ReFramed and Independent Lens, and the special Chasing the Dream: Poverty and Opportunity in America.

How do people like yourselves experience this in the U.S. and around the world? Join the conversation with WORLD...#HaveHaveNots
