Joseph Smith once said "My cogitations, like Daniel’s, have for a long time troubled me, when I viewed the condition of men throughout the world, and more especially in this boasted realm, where the Declaration of Independence “holds these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; ... but at the same time some two or three millions of people are held as slaves for life, because the spirit in them is covered with a darker skin" Today wages are kept artificially low by a combination of low wage immigration and government subsidy of low wages. Our government pays people to come here and work for low wages. This keeps the working poor in poverty and further enriches the wealthy. It forces tax payer's of modest means to indirectly subsidize billion dollar corporations like WalMart and McDonalds. Should LDS Church leaders speak out on this?
