They should lower tax on lower class. I know that it would take money from the government but let's be honest many of those government officials are just spending money on their 2 million dollar vacations and houses and if they suffer enough they could be a little bit humbled.
Small loan of a million dollars man doesn't know struggle or strife.

I don't think there is one way cause the problem has various causes. Giving employees rights that can't be signed away as a condition of employment would be good start. For example, companies love arbitration cause the arbitrators will side with them more than 90% of the time cause they don't want lose business. Employees can't really get fair hearings important issues like wage theft and workers compensation cause they are forced into arbitration by employment contracts.

Here's one. Realize that wealth isn't only bound to currency.

Force the lower class to play for higher education, get health insurance, cap amount of kids they can have, gut welfare so they cant live off that.

These are issues as to why they are poor. They have the mindset. They DONT want to go to University, they DONT want health insurance (then they get cancer and have a $500,000 bill), they WANT 50 kids to live off welfare.

This is the issue with the lower class mindset. If you want to fix the wage gaps, then the lower class needs to fix their mindset. My Grandfather didn't go from being a poor farm boy to a millionaire by wasting away. He went to school, got good grades, and worked hard for his future.

People want more money? Earn it. Work your damn ass off and make smart decisions. Stop taking the easy road or looking for a shortcut.

I came from a poor ass family in a shitty ghetto in Boston where being white was enough to get you shot/hated. If I could survive and make it to college and eventually get a good job so should the others who came from those situations or better. Tired of these excuses people use today. I had to forsake my childhood just to make sure I wouldn't end up in a ditch or working in a McDonalds the rest of my life.

As Dark_Alma stated, much of it is a mindset. People need to take responsibility for themselves. Reality is a bitch and you can't afford to slack off if you come from a lower class family. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty to fix in the system, but there's no excuse if someone fails.

I like this idea, but we all know the government likes to support the lazy and people who just keeps popping out kid after kid to continue their government support. You should be limited to kids based on how much net income you bring in. If your income is not enough to raise a single kid then YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO HAVE A KID YOU MORON! It's not even a restriction on freedom, it is the people standing up and saying NO WE WILL NOT SUPPORT YOU AND YOUR X KIDS, GET A JOB!
