Let's Solve Wealth Inequality

Fellow Americans that aren't reading this, I propose creating a federal minimum wage of $20.00.
By raising the minimum wage in the country, we can shrink the wealth gap while lowering the taxes on everyone. This will affect the 1% but they will see a dramatic decrease in taxes to the point where this will even out. The tax money that is then collected would be enough to allocate to the necessary aspects of infrastructure and the safety net.

This could be step one in the right direction. We would then have to make changes to every aspect of our life. In order to create a better society we need to reconstruct health, gender norms, consumerism, pollution, racism, xenophobia, heteronormativity, and authority.
