"The rich ones become richer and richer"

This is an article from the web site of "my" local newspaper. I draw my information from there.

The article says that although the wages of the masses stagnate (and have been stagnating or sinking during the last 10 years here !), the wages of the top positions are nothing but going up.

This is simple maths : The less the workers pay, the higher the profits are. And who gets the profits ? Right : Not the workers …

They did even wiggle around a law that was meant to limit the wages for the top positions a bit : They are not decresing the short-term bonus payments, and increasing the long-term bonus payments instead …

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
