Posted: Updated:

Workers are mad and they're not going to take it any more, according to Robert Reich.

The former Labor Secretary told HuffPostLive Wednesday that the recent explosion in wage protests shows "we are at a tipping point."

"People are beginning to say to themselves, we can't go on this way," Reich, who was on HuffPostLive to promote his new movie Inequality for All, said. "If we are minimum wage workers, there's no way we can support a family.'"
