Bernie Tells Disney How To Spend Its Profits From ‘Avengers’ Movie

Sen. Bernie Sanders shreds CEO Bob Iger’s pay and pushes Disney to use ‘Avengers: Endgame’ profit to give employees raises.

“What would be truly heroic is if Disney used its profits from Avengers to pay all of its workers a middle-class wage, instead of paying its CEO Bob Iger $65.6 million – over 1,400 times as much as the average worker at Disney makes.”

2020 Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders suggested on Twitter Monday that Disney spend its $1.2 billion in “Avengers: Endgame” profits on higher wages for the movie’s staff.

Disney’s “Avengers: Endgame” brought in $1.2 billion in just its first weekend, making it the first film in history to surpass $1 billion in its first two days, according to Vanity Fair.

Sen. Sanders responded to the film’s massive success on Twitter, urging Disney to use its profits to pay its employees “a middle-class wage” instead of overpaying its executives. He linked his comments to a Bloomberg article about the new box office record-breaker. More

Twitter chimes in:

Every time Sen. Bernie Sanders opens his mouth he reaffirms that he has absolutely no idea how money or economics work in real life. You can keep pointing your finger at others but Bernie we all know you’re a millionaire, too.
