Why does it matter how much people make? Why does it matter how much less other people make? This is why I will never understand Occupy Wall Street; I was always taught to strive to be in the 1%. The far left seems to not appreciate what the 1% does for the world. That statement probably sounds crazy to most leftists, especially the young leftists who have not been out in the workforce. Its not a matter of how hard you work, all Americans work hard, but how marketable you make yourself.
