By maintaining the gap between rich and poor, the wealthy of the country control the wages. The more poor people there are in the country, the more people there will be to work a lower wage, and thus the wage will remain low.
In order to maintain the gap between rich and poor, the wealthy of the country seek fiscal policies that benefit them. For example, tax cuts for top earners, corporate welfare/bailouts, and defense contracts.
And of course, they spread the nonsense that "tax cuts for the rich equals jobs for the poor". Not because it isn't true. More jobs are created, they are just low wage jobs which create more working poor and perpetuate the cycle of increasing and maintaining the gap between rich and poor.

It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
get an education and market yourself, make yourself valuable
of course, simply being a decent person, hardworking, unselfish, knowing when to keep your mouth shut, respecting the people and institutions at your place of employment that predate your precious appearance, exercising patience and restraint, showing a little class, listening more than talking, talking about others not yourself and doing so with sympathy---these and hundreds of other traits of hi character help, they are very important
quit whining and looking for handouts, quit making excuses and playing the victim
your classiest neighbors are too fine to tell you, but i'm not---you're about to make the majority of honest americans puke
the party's over
