ALLIES AGAINST INCOME INEQUALITY

The fight against income inequality is bigger than all of us. To really win this battle, we’ll need everyone on board, and there’s a ton of different ways you can get involved! Even if you’re not a union member, volunteering with any number of organizations could help turn the tide. Use our map to find allies in your area and help us win a fairer future for all Canadians.

NUPGE does not officially endorse any organizations unless they are clearly labeled as a NUPGE affiliate.

THE LISTS

IN THE NEWS

In Canada, the super-rich are getting richer and 77% are men — global wealth inequality reaches all-time high

“These new statistics expose the grotesque and obscene failure of the global economic system. Despite all the fancy promises from our political elites, the rich are getting richer, and income inequality is growing exponentially. And what’s equally morally unconscionable is that our federal Liberal government is doing nothing to stop it.” — Larry Brown, NUPGE President

World’s richest 0.1% increased their wealth by as much as the poorest 50%

"The growing body of credible evidence about income inequality is indisputable. But  there is also a growing consensus among economists that inequality is not inevitable. It can be stopped if countries legislate progressive income taxes, and by aggressively investigating and stopping tax cheaters and tax avoiders." — Larry Brown, NUPGE President.
