It matters to Springsteen.
Anyway, to be honest I never thought it was that big a deal, until I learned about the sorts of incredible pay packets and bonuses the banks which have been bailed out at everyone else's expense have been awarding, even against the wishes of shareholders (not to mention tax payers).
It got me thinking about whether I thought this was wrong because of the failures involved in the banking system and that they currently live at the taxpayers expense. To honest that's not the whole of it really. Not at all.
To be honest given the crisis which has occured and failures within the banking system I would have expected a market correction would take place resulting in a resetting of the wages and bonuses of these "masters of the universe" but that hasnt happened and I dont believe will happen or could happen.
I think there's something seriously wrong with the income gap, when people earn four times that of a lottery winner as something totally surplus to their average earnings, which are something in the same range. That money translates directly into privilege and without anything at all in common with everyone else how will any of them care about anything other than defending their privilege?
