Even Trump has said Greenwichs hedge fund people get by with slaying but can this debt-ridden commonwealth render to close the loophole known as carried stake?
Just emerging from their covering of wintertime snow, the luxuriant and leafy thoroughfares of Greenwich, Connecticut, are often quiet on a Saturday morning. Behind high-pitched walls and long drives sit the manicured mansions of some of the worlds richest parties. After a long week doing more millions, the last happening the residents miss is the help ruffling their beauty sleep. This weekend, though, was different.
On Saturday morning, a coachload of local works, bullhorns in hand, took to Greenwichs windy corridors for a declaration organised by union-backed neighbourhood community the organizations and statute as the Lifestyles of the Rich& Shameless bus tour.
Chanting El pueblo unido/ Jams ser vencido ( The beings joined/ Will never be defeated) and Hey hey, ho ho, tariff loopholes have got to to, a couple of dozen demonstrators, gently shepherded by local police, left giant imposition greenbacks totaling close to$ 3bn for some of the worlds richest hedge fund directors.
The demonstrators, and many others in Connecticut, are hoping they can coerce the country to reclaim such imposition from its richest residents as it fights with massive debts and prepares to sack thousands of local workers.
