The rich think that the poor are rich, with dire consequences

The rich think alike.

From CNBC:
Konheim, CEO and co-founder of luxury-fashion company Nicole Miller, said on CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Wednesday that Americans not in the top 1 percent would be considered wealthy in most of the world. He said the 99ers should stop complaining and understand how lucky they are.

"We've got a country that the poverty level is wealth in 99 percent of the rest of the world," he said.
That's from a rich business man. Here's one from a rich politician.
Singapore Prime Minister, about poor people in Singapore:
"Even poor people are not poor by any international standard."
The rich all think that the poor are rich.

Poor workers cannot expect any pay increase, the bosses think you are rich.

Poor citizens cannot expect any citizen dividend, "your" politicians think you can easily forgo your citizen dividend of $10,000 each annually.
