People living with low incomes is not the direct result of wealth inequality. Wealth disparity is inevitable, with some making millions while others are living off of minimum wage. This gap does not mean it’s the rich versus the poor when it comes to wealth distribution. The labor market is one of the significant factors that determine how much a person can make, with particular skills being more in demand than others, and as a result, pay a higher wage.
Whether an individual is a skilled or unskilled worker, both face the fact that that technology may replace their jobs. Technological advancements have made it easier to perform tasks that workers were once able to do, resulting in a decrease in job opportunities, not just for the unskilled workers, but the skilled workers as well. The question of whether or not we can become an egalitarian society has little to do with wealth and employment, but rather, the structure of the labor market from now on.
