Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has some interesting ideas over how Disney and Marvel Comics should spend their whopping $1.2 billion profits from the latest ‘Avengers’ film; calling on the House of Mouse to use the cash to increase workers’ wages.

“Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., suggested Monday it would be ‘truly heroic’ if Disney used the profits made from the blockbuster “Avengers: Endgame” to pay its workers more, in response to a report the Marvel hit set multiple records at the box office a day after it opened Friday,” reports Fox News.

“What would be truly heroic is if Disney used its profits from Avengers to pay all of its workers a middle class wage, instead of paying its CEO Bob Iger $65.6 million – over 1,400 times as much as the average worker at Disney makes,” posted Sanders on social media.
