Given what I see from Ancient India, and how deeply divided their caste system is, I can only assume that it indicates the presence of a class system long before we would have records for it.
And it is common sense. Humans are naturally inclined towards those like them, and averse to those who aren't.

You are the one who said "there has always been poor people and it will never change", I am just showing you that for 90% of its existence, humanity was not divided by inequality like it is today. And you brought ancient India like if it was an example of ancient societies in which there was division of labor and poor people and inequalities and I am telling you the ancient India you talk about lived in the same paradigm as we are today because there was agriculture already.
And bringing blind people as an example to prove that there were "classes" ?
But there have always been poor people. So long as there has been society. Thousands of years of class division....it may suck, but its what being human is.

We don't need to find work for 7 billion people.
Doesn't mean we need to do anything but change that expectation.

It's really a wake up call to get an education. However, i do believe they should get paid more. Some people get stuck in a hole from a few bad decisions they made when they were young. Minimum wage only extends that hole from getting deeper.
