Unfiltered: ‘Raising wages [doesn’t] kill jobs. It’s just a thing rich people say to poor people.’

When Nick Hanauer was just 7, his father made sure he and his brother knew every aspect of the family business. Today, Hanauer is a self-made billionaire. Hanauer’s business acumen has allowed him to become one of the wealthiest Americans — the so-called 1 percent — but it has also made him an unlikely champion of the poor and a passionate advocate for the advancement of economic equality in the U.S.

Nick Hanauer is a pretty insightful billionaire. Too bad there aren’t more like him.
