You want spread of wealth. Then do it. Take all income and divide it up among all the people. Every man and woman gets the same amount - no difference what so ever. In your view this should make everyone equal with great social harmony.

You go along doing so well, it almost looks like you might be getting it, and then you suddenly disconnect your brain and the above is the result.

The above was a tongue-in-cheek remark.

So many people talking about spreading the wealth. Well if it is such a great idea, tell me why the above is such a bad idea.

We live in a Capitalist Society, and incentive is the bottom line of such a society. Of course, there ​is no incentive to do a good job, when the job doesn't even pay enough to live on!

In all the rhetoric about work, and "incentives," the above somehow is never mentioned.

So, the employee doesn't give a sht if he keeps the job or loses it. He can beg somewhere else. Oddly enough, when an employee ​ has something to lose, ​ they are much better at their job.

Go figure...
