desertmuscl saidFair is a matter of perspective. Anyone who has worked hard and succeeded will say the system is fair.The trouble is that most people are not rewarded for hard work. The wealthy business owners of today are cold hearted and cheap. They all want something for nothing. That greed is what is destroying the work ethic. These rich bastards cannot get their fill of money so they are stingy as hell with wages and benefits, disgusting
Do you think it is wrong to be rewarded for hard work?
If hard work was all it took then low income people working 3 jobs would be wealthy.
There are many factors that influence wealth generation.
And yes I agree here there are a great deal of cut throat corporations working hard to keep people poor. I know because as an investment banker I was present in the meetings with private equity owners when we looked at cost cutting and exporting jobs to different countries to increase profits for shareholders.
Not all companies and all the rich are bad but profits do rule over people
A lot of the new economy companies seek to reduce the cost of labour. Uber distributes money for taxi drivers to anyone making it competitive. Supermarket workers are replaced with self checkout.
It's a big game of monopoly really. Americans are starting to wake up a little. We see campaigns like this with bring back American jobs but I don't know if that will be enough.
