Dan Price became a media sensation when he announced that the minimum wage at his company, Gravity Payments, would be elevated to $70,000 per year. Price was branded a socialist by Fox News and a hero by just about everyone else. Journalist Doug Forbes and documentary filmmaker Michael Nigro proposed a documentary series to cover the transition of Gravity Payment employees to their $70,000 wage. During the on-again, off-again negotiation with Price and his handlers, Forbes and Nigro sensed something was not quite right with the Gravity Payment CEO's story.
Forbes conducted a four-month investigation that has unearthed fraud on a massive scale that puts thousands of businesses and tens of thousands of jobs at risk. This week on Acronym TV, Dennis Trainor, Jr. talks with Doug Forbes about the CEO Robber Baron masquerading as Robin Hood.
