Senator's daughter who raised price of EpiPen got $19 million salary, perks in 2015 - Chicago Tribune

From the article:

A standard 2-pack now costs between $600 to $700. The price has prompted outrage among many consumers who have taken to social media to complain that they can no longer afford the potentially lifesaving medicine.

"A trip to the ER is now cheaper. HOW CAN THIS BE??" one woman tweeted on Wednesday. Actress Mia Farrow weighed in: "Grandchild w severe allergies needs life saving #Epipen. Cost has soared. Luckily we can pay the $600. Impossible for many scared parents."

The contrast between Bresch's lavish lifestyle - her signature designer five-inch stilettos for example - and those of ordinary families struggling to afford the drugs her company sells is a theme that has come up again and again.

The myth and the reality of Donald Trump’s business empire - The Washington Post

Trump also faced a long-running lawsuit over the use of undocumented workers at the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The building was allegedly built by undocumented Polish workers who were paid $5 an hour or less, when they were paid at all. The case dragged on for decades. The judged ruled that Trump knew that Polish workers were working off the books and were paid illegally and sub-standardly. Trump appealed, and the case was ultimately settled in 1999.
