I would genuinely like to understand why people who make average or lower wages believe they are entitled to more. From where does this sense of entitlement come?
Much of the "greed" of the wealthy derives from their feeling that they worked hard and played their cards right, and therefore, they deserve to have a lot of money. I'm speaking for people like myself who were born lower-middle class, worked through 8 years of college, chose a historically lucrative career, worked 80 hour weeks in the beginning years of our careers and are now doing well financially. That's what I did to become part of the top 1 or 2%.
What did you do to deserve more?
