In a recent op-ed, Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio was critical of America’s corporate culture and called for an economy that reflects the nation’s values.

“We can’t go back to business as usual before the pandemic, when it wasn’t working for a whole lot of people. … we must create a new system centered on the dignity of work.”

He added, “The economy isn’t physics—it’s not governed by scientific laws outside our control. It’s made up of people making choices about our values and what kind of society we want to live in.

“We have the power to change how the economy works, so it rewards work instead of greed. We can create more jobs at middle-class wages. We can give people power over their lives and schedules. We can expand economic security and opportunity for everyone,” said the Ohio senator.
