Reader: The rich and the poor 


So Len Bentley wants to know when was the last time a "poor person" gave you a job?

Each time a "poor person" gets money they usually spend it. Thus creating demand. And considering that the United States is a demand-driven economy (regardless of what Republican dogma would tell us), this creates jobs.

So yes Len, without those "poor people" spending all their money, you wouldn't have those rich people you admire, so much so that you'd love to live in a second Gilded Age.
