I believe your right. The left will never be happy until we are all making close to the same amount of money. Unfortunately it would not bring UP salaries, it would just lower all salaries to the lowest common denominator. I'm sure many lefties would be happy if ALL people made minimum wage. They would call that "Fair".

It's funny how the left is always happy when their politicians talk about raising taxes on the wealthy. As if they are going to benefit somehow.
No the political elites and ultra wealthy would continue to be richly rewarded. Joe Biden lives well beyond the means of a 50 year public office holder but no questions are allowed. The Obama's complain about systemic racism from their $13 million home. The tech oligarchs are willing to practice about any form of repression to keep friendly Democrat socialists in charge. Socialism is not for the socialists it's for the rest of us.
