They have no such power. In reality populare candidates have the power to squeeze corporations for donations by threatening them with harmful regulations. They have no power to drive down wages. Politicians, on the other hand, do have that power by flooding the country with immigrants willing to work for low wages. How on earth would they do that? Why would they do it if they could? It sure isn't working in the housing sector, is it? How do they accomplish this "transfer" of wealth? I'm dying to know.
