It makes an interesting point about how the wage differences can affect an individual but it's not based on anything fair. The government shouldn't be spending and taxing as much as they do. Punishing people for being successful is not a good principle.
Now the top .01% hundred million-billionaires are a different story. They still shouldn't be treated unfairly or have their earnings stolen but what's fair for their kind of wealth should be more. I'm more interested in allowing equal opportunity for anyone to earn more, without fear of government intervention.
