June 30, 2014,
Nick Hanauer, scion of the Hanauer family that founded and continues to own PCFC, is now a venture capitalist. He made his first fortune by investing in a start-up company called Amazon.com.
In Politico, he urges business leaders to lift wages and engage in other activities to shore up the middle class and close the wealth gap.
Otherwise, he warns, the pitchforks are coming for the top wealth holders in the country.
