If you put all the money in a pot and shared it out equally ... in a short few months time the money would have flowed back to the wealthy 1%.
I highly doubt that. If you think Paris Hilton or any Kardashian would out earn the guy working 2 full time jobs for minimum wage despite the fact that he is a licensed doctor/lawyer in his native country you are nuts.
There is a prevailing premise that the rich work harder than the poor. However this is almost never the case. For every self made uber rich person there is a slew of slacker coattail riding family members who just do enough to get by, and for that 1 rich guy who works hard for what he gets there are 1000s of minimum wage workers putting in 80 hours a week that will never get ahead because of the start they got in life.
