You fail to explain why weath or income gap is a problem.Trudeau and Morneau did a good job of having Canada in great financial shape to deal with the pandemic spending. We are the envy of the world.
Unfortunately, the wealth and income gaps continue to create widening disparities and they have reached a critical point.
It was a situation that was predicable and well understood by economists. Wealth gaps are a natural side effect of any capitalist system.
Some economists have suggested a tax on production, instead of labor. Others have suggested a universal basic income as a solution.
It will be interesting to see if November's financial budget provides some insight into how the government plans to address the problem.
They may choose to sweep the problem under the rug, as past governments have done for decades, or they may boldly initiate a solution.
If someone does something more valuable, why shouldn't they get paid more?
I'm sorry, but it's a lot of work to become a doctor, I think they should have a higher income than some unemployed pothead. That's just me.
The thing with people who complain about the "wealth gap", they're just jealous that others have more. It's simple envy.
It's like "student loan debt", do you know how much debt I had when I graduated?
It was simple, I saved during HS (ie no car)
I then worked while at school, and lived really really cheaply.
My wife went to school, and did the same thing.
The thing is I wonder how many of these "wealth gap" whiners actually have multiple jobs, or a side hustle, or do they just complain about it.
