Does inequality bother you? Rich vs Poor divide Watch
Genuinely speaking in the UK (West).
I hope this government's plan to drive up academic standards for 15+ year olds (who have long lagged behind their European and East Asian peers) succeeds.
Whether it bothers me or not is insignificant. The fact is that, for the most part, inequality has remained stagnant or continues to grow. Yes, almost everyone benefits under the current system, but the rate at which the rich benefit more than the poor is one that is unfortunate.
I'm not talking about specific individuals or groups as one might do when they highlight 'bankers bonuses' or other such buzzwords, I'm talking about the broad demographic of middle-to-upper class groups in society who, for the most part, live in the south-east of England. The way in which these groups benefit is subtle but significant, with divides in life expectancy, average wage, number of children, and more things. The gap between the North and the South of the UK is, as I said, seeming to remain stagnant in many areas.
Yes it does. If you make 30MM for your company, you should reasonably expect to take 1MM as reward. Why should someone work their ass of to bring in that revenue for their employer and skulk around the 50k mark?
