Reich also said that he was a friend of Michael Schwerner, who was murdered in Mississippi in 1964 with two other men when working on voting rights (Wikipedia link), a story I recall well.
The film is based in large part on Robert Reich's 2011 book "Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future" (Vintage).
The film was financed in part with Kickstarter.
The theme song from "Nine to Five" (1980, Cilin Higgins, 20th Century Fox) was used in the closing credits, as were a few clips, to illustrate how the workplace has changed and real wages for middle class people have deteriorated. I recall seeing that comedy in Dallas, TX, in the old Northtown Mall, I think.
