Bernie Sanders Attacks Disney after ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Success

Socialists certainly have a penchant for spending other people’s money.

This was demonstrated once more when 2020 Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders went after Disney and publically told them how they ought to spend their profits from Avengers: Endgame.

Sanders’ Message to Disney

For some unknown reason, Bernie Sanders has deemed himself as the arbitrator of how Disney ought to spend the money which they’ve earned. Yesterday, Sanders fired off a tweet, claiming that it would be “truly heroic” of Disney to increase the wages of their workers.

See for yourself:

There are so many flaws in Sanders’ message, but we’ll get to that momentarily. Last year, the socialist also tweeted about Disney, only this time he congratulated them for increasing employees’ wages to $15.00/hour.

The Fallacies in Sanders’ Logic

Like many on the radical far left, Sanders loves telling other people, companies, and businesses what they ought to do with their profits. According to Sanders’ logic, Disney should increase the wages of their workers simply because Avengers: Endgame is breaking records at the box office.

How does the success of Avengers: Endgame change the value which Disney employees bring to the table, especially in comparison to the CEO of the company? Sanders talks about the Disney CEO making over 1,400 times as much as Disney’s employees, but the CEO has much more responsibilities. Collectively, employees are valuable to a company, but as individuals, they can easily be replaced.

The fact of the matter is that any CEO of a business has much more responsibilities than any employees. This isn’t to say that employees don’t play a role in business, but it’s a very different role. If Sanders and others like him want to drastically increase the pay of employees, then the employees are going to have to be willing and qualified to take on additional responsibilities.

Contrary to the socialist, utopian fantasies, people are paid in direct proportion to the value they bring to the table…as they should be.
