This guy was on “Undercover Boss” a few years back. He gave people working for him a breathtaking amount of money, and instituted changes system wide that took a lot of money out of his own pocket and redistributed it as services for his employees. It was impressive.
Keep in mind that there’s no scenario you can create where the poor and middle class get richer while the rich get poorer. We all move together in lockstep. The RATIOS might vary (as we all know, over the last few decades, its been rich getting most of the wealth improvement, the other groups not so much) but we all end up moving in the same direction, ultimately.
