The multi-millionaire Comedian, Chris Rock Comments on Income Inequality, which was just one of the various topics he discussed in his recent interview with New York Magazine.
Rock says “Oh, people don’t even know. If poor people knew how rich rich people are, there would be riots in the streets. If the average person could see the Virgin Airlines first-class lounge1, they’d go, “What? What? This is food, and it’s free, and they … what? Massage? Are you kidding me?
They’re given free laptops and TVs. They also get paid thousands of dollars to just show up at clubs.
They get gift bags just for attending big award shows, bags filled with goodies worth $20,000 — which is more than a full-time minimum wage worker earns in a year. Their kids’ birthday parties have corporate sponsors.”
Really, it’s so ironical that the Rich enjoy all these perks when there are millions of people out there who really yearn for these benefits but can’t get to it because of their low income status.
