Interestingly, none of Canada's top 20 richest lost wealth during the pandemic.
There are some big companies struggling but the richest seems to be invincible and continues to make money while millions of people lost their jobs.
These situations increase the difference between the rich and the poor. That's pathetic.
A few days ago, our private driver from when we went to Indonesia in 2018 contacted us. There are no more tourists so he lost his job, there's no government help, he lost his rented car and after 6 months of pandemic he exhausted his emergency fund. There's no job so he's trying to start a new business, but he has no capital to start with... That guy was so friendly and resourceful, he would drive us all around Indonesia 16h/day, he would pick us up at 4 AM in the morning as he would drop us at 2 AM in the night.
Meanwhile, some people who have not even lost their job are currently complaining that they don't have a nice chair and nice desk to work from home?
Meanwhile, the richest are making billions in a few months... during a crash... during a pandemic...?!
