about five years ago that the CBC reported that forty percent of the world’s
wealth was owned by one percent of the world’s population. There has been an ever increasing gap between
the wealthy, and the common-day worker, as the occupy movement so overtly
showed. It has been claimed that the
wealthiest in North America are so out of touch that they needed to go
undercover and perform work expectation tasks (that they usually cannot
complete in adequate time) in a reality show called “Undercover Boss”. This show is meant to encourage the boss to
feel sympathy for the lowly worker.
However, Jean Swanson, an anti-poverty activist, would argue that this
is a form of poor-bashing.
