Our economy needs a moral revolution. Take California, for example. Despite having the world’s fifth-largest economy, the state produces immense racial and economic inequality, exacerbating pressures on workers paid wages so low they can’t even afford housing. Multiple crises during the past three years — a global pandemic, critical shortage of affordable housing and inflation — have intensified the suffering. These crises have displaced families, forcing tens of thousands of people into houselessness. An increasing number of people must work multiple jobs to survive.
