Yes, it's time once again for one of those "serious" episodes of Men in Gorilla Suits.
Polish your monocle and tell your butler to bring you a 25-year-old fine scotch...this time around, the subject is income inequality...
* * *
We begin with what seems like a question with an obvious answer, but for some people...well, it isn't: Do you think thereâ€™s a problem with income inequality in this country? After that we chat about income classes we've lived in during our lives...as well as where our spouses have been. Then we devote some time to differing financial views we may have had with early roommates or our spouses in the past.
Find out what social class we sit in now...and what we think has caused the shrinking of the middle class. Along those lines, we ponder if people in different classes can truly understand the lives of those in other classes.
Fast food workers: do they deserve $15/hour? We talk about that...and then move on to whether we should try invigorating the middle class...or if the middle class is even necessary...
Near the end, we talk about Millennials: have they gotten the shaft economy-wise?
And we wrap it all up with a not-so-simple question: How do we fix income inequality.
