"Trump has no clue how the economy works. He thinks rich guys like us drive the economy, but it's just the opposite: Prosperous workers do. Trump opposes raising the minimum wage and even said wasges in America are "too high" He's dead wrong. - Nick Hanauer, Venture Capitalist

"Corporate profits are at a 50 year high while unemployment is also at a 50 year high. If it was true that the rich were the job creators, we'd be drowning in jobs today." --Billionaire Nick Hanauer
