I don't think supporting policies that promote equality is the 'politics of envy'. A more equal society is a happier society. Less social problems.
You started this post by asking who thought people were paid too much. That is not about equality, it is as Nayan suggested a race to the bottom, and envious. If you want more money, go train and earn it, this option is open to anyone
'Why do you exclude the disabled? are we not entitled to question their salaries? or is tit only fair for you to question the salaries of many hard-working managers'
I excluded those with disabilities because I assume that even slow workers earn the minimum wage.
But is it really fair that some directors earn the minimum wage (per year) in just one hour? Are a few people really 'worth' 120 times someone else?
Yes I believe that, Company owners and Directors are much maligned as fat cats, but most have worked their way from lower down the scale and so are deserving of their earnings. If they don't do what they do, there is no work for the lower paid at all.
You are sounding slightly envious if I'm honest, and your assumptions on disabled people are simply an attempt to seem benevolent and just currying favour.
Excellent point if I invest and cannot make good returns I'll pull my investment to elsewhere and the jobs market suffers. The Goose that laid the golden egg is well and truly shot. It does demonstrate a poor understanding
Who thinks their pay is sufficient? Who thinks that some people (NOT the disabled) salaries are far too high? Do you think that companies should be expected to pay the living wage, as a minimum?
Why do you exclude the disabled? are we not entitled to question their salaries? or is tit only fair for you to question the salaries of many hard working managers and directors, many of whom prop up companies so the people on the lower wages can earn anything at all. Without Owners, investors, Directors and Managers there would be no work to do. Everyone contributes and earns at what is a valid rate, I believe Russia tried your method once.
