In the movie "Inequality for All" (2013), former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich explains the deepening U.S. crisis due to the widening economic gap between the workers and the companies.
Throughout the film, Robert Reich explains the economic crisis
- with simple facts and statistics;
- with explanations at the University of California, Berkeley, in his class on "Wealth and Poverty";
- with an interview with Emmuel Saez and Thomas Picketty, authors of the best selling book "Capital in the Twenty-First Century" (2013), who examined the income taxes paid by U.S. citizens since they were introduced in 1913 to today.

- the attacks by the U.S. capitalist class through the U.S. State (President Reagan) against the trade unions to lower the wages of the workers;
- the investments of capitalists in other countries (Example : the cellular phones are produced in Germany and assembled in China. But there is enough jobs in the U.S. but people earn less and less because of the class struggle : the capitalists are ;

Nous assistons à la transformation des travailleurs des États-Unis en travailleurs du tiers monde, qui travaillent pour des salaires de plus en plus dérisoires et qui doivent travailler sans arrêt pour pouvoir payer leur dettes et les paiements de leurs maisons qu'ils ont dû hypothéquer pour payer leurs dépenses grandissantes, les dettes de leurs cartes de crédit et les paiement hypothécaires.
