United States of America is the known chosen land of the free. All you need is common sense to realize that you are not truly free as an American citizen. It helps to have some money. Many American citizens are underpaid and overworked. So many American citizens consider their pay to be low in terms of income. That’s just the reality through the perspective of an average American citizen who is considered a modern day slave by society. The average American citizen is a modern day slave. In the eyes of many American citizens, income equality is income inequality.
Only those who are rich will succeed. Those who are poor are deemed as failures. Those are the norms in such ideology imposed by American culture and society. Politics and culture play huge roles inside income inequality and income equality in the United States of America.
