    I initially wrote a very long self aggrandizing response...but I decided instead to answer with two things. 1-Hard work and 2-Preparation for the future.

    the majority of millionaires are first generation. and who cares how they got rich. unless it was from criminal activity its really none of your concern. they don't owe you anything.
    I wasn't implying they inherited it at all. I was talking about exploiting the worker who work under them. Through means of owning a business. I can not imagine a billionare who doesn't have anyone working below him/her.

    How dare they employ people to give them a miniscule wage when compared to what the product's profit is sold for. And yeah the top 1% is selfish. If they weren't they wouldn't be the top 1%..

    If the salary is too low, they can find a job elsewhere that will give them a salary more in line with what they deserve. If they can't find jobs elsewhere that will pay more, then they're earning something commensurate with what they're worth.

    Newsflash: Your salary is not tied to the profit of whatever your company sells its products for.

    And yeah the top 1% is selfish. If they weren't they wouldn't be the top 1%..

    There is very few worker's run businesses that operate at a truly fair wage system.

    Wouldn't that make more sense?

    Just basic common sense.

    So go out and start one. If they're actually a good idea and not just laughably inefficient and poorly run gimmicks, I'm sure it will be wildly successful.

    Wouldn't that make more sense?
    No, not at all. A janitor who sweeps the floor of a company that makes products with 100% profit margins should not make more than a janitor who sweeps the floor of a company that makes products with a 5% profit margin.

    Just basic common sense.
    Lots of things seem like common sense if you don't really think them through.

    Makes sense enough. I suppose I was more thinking that if a company makes a massive amount it should distribute some of the profits instead of going to the CEO, the most idle of the workers in the company.

    How am I wrong?

    .
    See, here's the thing. The affluent business owners wouldnt like this happening in their own businesses, so that's why they are so rare. The ones that do exist are quite successful! You've never heard of a cooperative?

    Can you imagine running an actual business? Or having an actual job? Someday in this wonderful system of ours you will have the opportunity to do more than actually talk about how evil others are or how much better you would do it or giving lip service to causes while you expect the government to redistribute wealth and to provide for everyone...You can actually lead the way...start this wonderful business that hires and treats everyone as equals. History shows us this utopian model works so WELL that it has FLOURISHED throughout the world...right?

    Cant WAIT to see it.
