Don't like where you are in life? Do something about it.
I want to be a rich guy, so instead of whining, I'm going to work harder and learn from those who are already successful.
This is a huge problem. I don't care as much about the middle class not getting paid their fair wage. I think wages are fair (though would agree that regular employees are being asked to take on more work for less hours on the company dime).
My greater concern is that while executives are pocketing less money, less of that money is being invested into long-term growth.
This is why our economy is shit. Because rather than build a new plant to expand the company, executives are either pocketing that money or they're trying to boost short-term earnings.
If corporations would invest more of this widening gap money into their businesses, we'd be able to create a hell of a lot more jobs.
