Robert Reich: The rich donít work anymore ó working is for poor people

In reality, a large and growing share of the nationís poor work full time ó sometimes sixty or more hours a week Ė yet still donít earn enough to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

Itís also commonly believed, especially among Republicans, that the rich deserve their wealth because they work harder than others.

In reality, a large and growing portion of the super-rich have never broken a sweat. Their wealth has been handed to them.


That widening inequality ó combined with the increasing numbers of people who work full time but are still impoverished and of others who have never worked and are fabulously wealthy ó is undermining the moral foundations of American capitalism.


GOP: April Fools Day
