Ever since the world went to shit and everything started being extra-sucky (basically since the start of 2020), there’s been a renewed focus on the disparity and the injustice caused by the world’s wage gap. There’s a tragic divide between how the poor are viewed and treated as opposed to the rich, even if it’s regarding the exact same thing. To that end, someone asked a very pertinent question on Twitter.

It might not seem like something groundbreaking at first, but the question actually has a lot of substance. And the answers truly highlight just how disturbing society’s treatment of the poor is, when compared to the rich.

Clearly, the underlying, and sometimes overt discrimination that the poor face just because of a lack of means is not lost on everyone. What’s needed now is a greater understanding and rectification of the situation.
