In the hour it takes a new Walmart employee to earn the $11 starting wage, the Walton family earns 4 million. That's $70,000 per minute.

An Amazon warehouse worker would need to work for over 200 years to earn what Bezos earns in one hour.

But right you are, we are told that it's our own fault we are broke. Not working hard enough or waking up early enough or some such.

This was excellent. Hope it gets a ton of reads.
