This sounds like a good idea. If workers had more say in how companies were run, they would receive more benefits - and have more economic power.

PLEASE NOTE THESE FACTS! Warren’s bill — officially titled the Accountable Capitalism Act — would:

* Require American corporations that bring in over a billion dollars in annual revenue to obtain a federal charter, which would force companies to “consider the interests of all corporate stakeholders,” including workers, customers, and communities;
* Give workers the power to elect at least 40 percent of corporate board members;
* Ban corporations from making political expenditures “without the approval of 75 percent of its directors and shareholders”; and
* Allow the federal government to revoke a corporation’s charter if it engages in illegal behavior.
