NEW POLL: Voters Convinced that Corporate Greed is Driving Inflation, Strongly Support Policies Tackling Issue Head-On

Today, Groundwork Collaborative released a new poll from Data for Progress gauging the public’s perceptions on recent inflation. The results, as mentioned in Yahoo Finance, showed that a majority of voters blame large corporations for price increases and strongly support policies that address monopoly behavior and corporate profiteering head-on.

“Big corporations aren’t shy in telling their investors how they’re taking advantage of the pandemic to jack up prices and pad their own profits – and the public is noticing,” said Groundwork’s Executive Director Lindsay Owens. “Policymakers should listen to voters by cracking down on corporations raising prices unfairly, addressing corporate consolidation and monopoly power, and increasing taxes on corporations.”
