    Amazon employees however in the higher tiers are actually very well paid.

    What people also fail to realise and this is exactly like the "Why doesn't Elon Mush share his wealth instead of building rockets to further humanity" argument is that even if that wealth is shared right down the middle to each worker the difference to their pocket is near meaningless.
    I read a similar thing with Walmart. Basically if the CEO shared his salary among the employees, their monthly salaries would go up by $10 or something.

    Yup it’s exactly that.

    It just doesn’t scale.

    I don’t think we would reach a point where nobody works.

    I do however see that we would work less and in different way and get more benefit from it as a whole.

    When work becomes something people want to do instead of have to do things become very different quickly.
