The world's richest person declined an invite from Sen. Bernie Sanders to speak at a hearing on wealth and income inequality, a spokesperson for Sanders told the media outlet. An Amazon representative said that while Bezos is unavailable to appear before the committee, he supports Sanders's efforts to address inequality. "We fully endorse Senator Sanders' efforts to reduce income inequality with legislation to increase the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour for all workers, like we did for ours in 2018," the spokesperson told CNN.
