Inequality drives competition - the "I want what she's got" so I work harder. Would any union worker work overtime if he knew he would not be paid for it? No! He has better use for his time. Yet we expect that small business will keep on putting in the hours to grow their businesses and create jobs when we over tax and over regulate them. Next we are going to do the same to health care providers. Since their earnings are "above average" it is only fair that they have some of it taken away from them. If you remove the incentive to preform - the ability to have a better life, you will lose the service of their labor.
