Tom Williams argues capitalism in the United States needs an overhaul so it works better for everyone.

Williams is the president and CEO of North American Properties and vice chairman and one of the principal owners of the Cincinnati Reds.

He’s also a commissioner for the Coalition for Inclusive Capitalism, a national group that’s working to make economic systems function better for everyone.

“We’ve had some employers do some great things,” said Audrey Treasure, vice president and executive director of the Workforce Innovation Center at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. The center works with local companies, she said, to help them examine their policies and suggest changes to help them retain employees and thrive as businesses.

“Because the market is down right now, we’ve seen employers raising wages,” Treasure said. “They might have maternity leave but don’t have paternity leave. Or it doesn’t cover pregnancy loss or doesn’t cover adoption.”

Changes can add up to making a workplace more appealing for employees, she said, and providing workers with the pay and benefits they need to support themselves and their families.
