You would have to be hiding under a rock to not have heard of the Occupy Wall Street protest and the accompanying discussions of the 1% and a greater wage gap. These arguments have been thrown in the face of conservatives by liberals over and again as if all conservatively minded individuals hope to see the wealthy become wealthier at the expense of the poor. However, this is not the case.
The simple fact of the matter is that this is not a black and white subject but is multifaceted and must take into account many different factors.
The conservative approach to the layered topic must look at it from a bottom-up focus. We must seek to maximize the opportunities for all income classes and in doing so help the least well off.
We can help with the maximization by focusing on upward mobility through education that allows workers be empowered and regulating taxing of businesses that allows them the ability to pay their workers better and create more jobs. If we continue to penalize the highest income tax brackets it ultimately leads to a breakdown of upward mobility and breakdown of the family unit.
