Saw this question in an article today and thought...that's a great question, I should ask my fellow hubbers!

Exactly. I totally agree, Anne, the free market does have limits and those limits are the exact point where the question of morality enters.
Your income is not dependent on hours worked. It has nothing to do with it. Income is based on the demand for the specific skills your offer. If nobody is willing to pay for what you offer than you have to revist what you're offering.
Your 3rd point defies the laws of economics. The wealthy get wealthy by creating capital.Their wealth has no bearing on what somebody else is paid. We are all paid what we are worth in a free market.Your worth is what someone will pay for your skills
Dude, thats great but theres so many of us, barely anyone is worth their wealth... They made a profit, what they get affects what i get.
Law of economics...
No everyone is worth what they're paid. If your skills are more valuable then sell them for more. If you can't, then there not. Those are the laws of economics. In order to get hired you must produce more than you are paid or there is no point.
Lostdog, You nailed it - caught Mr.Clark in a LOADED question and turned it around! If you haven't already read or heard Dr. George Lakoff, linguist from Berkeley, talk about how rhetoric affects our views, you might like to google him. Cheers!
