There's a fine line between being compensated and being taken advantage of.

People need to work to live. This often forces people to accept being taken advantage of to make ends meet. Taking advantage of someone else for your benefit is no gift.
New York state is facing a $2.3 billion budget deficit
"We've set up reserves, but this is worse than we had anticipated," Cuomo said at a state Capitol news conference in Albany on Monday after referring to the fiscal situation as being "as serious as a heart attack."
“This is the flip side. Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich. The rich leave, and now what do you do?” — -Andrew Cuomo

You were whinging that wealthy people will take their money offshore.
I said good riddance.
Yeah, when's the last time a poor person signed your paycheck?
Good riddance? Yeah, and all the prosperity they bring too.

Also Michael Moore is a joke. I can’t believe I used to respect him. I guess maybe he was better in his Fahrenheit 911 days. Probably if I rewatched it I’d rethink that lol.
