Capital and Main Launches United States of Inequality Series

1 min read

Even with low unemployment and robust job growth, a majority of Americans face high levels of economic insecurity.

On Tuesday, November 5 Capital and Main launches a yearlong reporting project on inequality in America. “The United States of Inequality” will be one of the most far-reaching examinations of inequality undertaken by an American media outlet in many years, and has the potential to exert significant influence on the national political conversation.

This Capital & Main series examines how tens of millions of Americans increasingly struggle to make ends meet and how this reality may affect the 2020 presidential elections.

DemCast is an advocacy-based 501(c)4 nonprofit. We have made the decision to build a media site free of outside influence. There are no ads. We do not get paid for clicks, but are sustained solely on donations from grassroots supporters. Because our revenue isn’t click-driven, we don’t take in any direct revenue from the creative contributions of grassroots activists who post on the site. This sets us apart from other media sites. And we’re proud of that.
