|The 1st Freedom is from WANT|
The point of the post is that no one can with good conscience can claim his work value is worth S4000 an hour when another person is worth only $7.25. Even so I would have no problem with high income for any person if every person had a Basic Income Guarantee to purchase sufficient food, adequate shelter, medical care, and equal access to learn life skills from K-12 to a Doctors Degree according to the ability to learn & perform the skills [not the ability to afford to pay for them].
With that kind of equal starting line and no "means testing" from a Government Bureau for Begging, I would give up the minimum wage and other Safety Net programs (except Retirement Social Security] An Unconditional Basic Income Guarantee is the ultimate Freedom from desperation and Wage-Slavery. It is an open door to the power to bargain for wages on the individual level. It is a true Right to Work [or not} opportunity. It empowers true Life, Liberty, and the Right to Pursue Happiness.
