Yes, the higher-incomes work harder
No, higher-incomes don't work harder
Lets be fair...High Stress office jobs can be awful...and to many harder than a construction labor job...I think its relative some High earners dont do much at all and some have time consuming busy stressful jobs....Like Kali said what is hard....
the point is-there are at least a thousand boys born the same year as Roger Federer who worked just as hard in tennis and had just as much top coaching. Some of those guys are people you may have heard of-David Nalbandian for one. 990 you have never heard of and never will.
Everyone has a specific threshold unique to their own capabilities, IMO rich or poor has nothing to do with it.
I don't know why you're equating 'hard work' with 'must earn more money' - whereas many companies favor 'higher education and more mentally capable individuals' over these 'physical labor oriented ones' because it's skills, education, experience that matters most - ALWAYS. Because there are less of these individuals whereas grunt work has a high-turnover rate.
