That is factually inaccurate.
The one percent are not producers. They are figure workers. Administrators. Their "efforts" are minimal, and their so called contributions are
negligible. They do not achieve profits. Their whole companies do, but those companies are not made up of tiny numbers of people, and instead involve
the combined strength of thousands, tens of thousands, and hundreds of thousands of individuals, all gears in a machine without which the whole would
The reality is that these people are NOT the ones making money for companies. Those straining to adhere to company policy while their departments are
under staffed and over worked, are the ones performing above and beyond the call of their duty. Those struggling to pay bills and none the less
returning to their poorly paid labours every day despite it doing them very little good in the long run, are the ones making a contribution to that
profit margin. The fellows at the top are not talented, not skilled, and many of them are not even very good at their jobs. A fair percentage get
where they get, because they are psychopathic and ruthless and allow nothing to stand between them and a vastly over inflated pay packet, including
their own inadequacies.
THAT is the truth of it.
Those taking the most out, cannot, by definition, be those putting the most in. The two positions are mutually exclusive.
