Veteran labor journalist and Institute for Policy Studies associate fellow Sam Pizzigati co-edits Inequality.org, the Institute's weekly newsletter on our great divides. He also contributes a regular column to OtherWords, the IPS national nonprofit editorial service.

Sam, now retired from the labor movement, spent two decades directing the publishing program at America's largest union, the 2.8-million-member National Education Association, and before that edited the national publications of three other U.S. trade unions.

Sam's own writing has revolved around economic inequality since the early 1990s. His op-eds on income and wealth concentration have appeared in periodicals all around the world, from the New York Times to Le Monde Diplomatique.

Sam has authored three books and co-edited two others. His 2004 book, Greed and Good: Understanding the Inequality that Limits Our Lives, won an "outstanding title" honor from the American Library Association's book review journal. His most recent book, The Rich Don't Always Win: The Forgotten Triumph over Plutocracy that Created the American Middle Class, 1900-1970, appeared in 2012.

A Maryland resident since 1975, Sam served on the founding board of directors of Progressive Maryland, a statewide labor and community coalition for social change.

Trump's "Reform" Tilts Tax Code to Favor the Rich If this Trump tax plan passes, Americans making $60,000 will still be paying over four times more of their income in payroll taxes than Americans who make $1 million. And America's millionaire-packed top 1 percent will also be enjoying, the Tax Policy Center calculates, 80 percent of the new tax cuts the Trump tax plan puts in place by 2027. The White House calls that "reform." It's an outrage.
