About Nick Hanauer
Nick Hanauer has led or funded more than 30 companies across a range of industries. A "proud and unapologetic capitalist," he has also been looking at our growing inequality gap, and the way it damages our democracies. In 2013, Hanauer published a commentary in Bloomberg BusinessWeek proposing a $15 minimum wage. Hanauer believes if societal inequality is allowed to grow unchecked, modern societies could start looking like pre-Revolutionary France.
