The average cashier at McDonald's would have to work for 895 years to make what the company's CEO makes in one year. Disney's CEO gets over $400 million in compensation while Disneyland workers can't afford three meals a day.

Sen. Bernie Sanders has invited CEOs and workers from four major corporations—Amazon, Disney, McDonald's and Walmart—to hold a conversation on corporate power in America and how to move forward to create an economy that works for all people, not just a few at the top. The town hall will be presented in partnership with digital media outlets act.tv, Good Jobs Nation, NowThis, TYT Network, Guardian US, ATTN: and Free Speech TV, The Nation Magazine, CREDO Mobile and MoveOn.
