It's hilarious that you genuinely think that people would favor being in the lower class, just because they get less than what they deserve from the company directly plus tax benefits or other forms of governmental support to make it "more" for "nothing".
So you choose "lack of understanding"?
What incentive does it give somebody that's poor or unemployed, if they will have a never-ending gravy train if they keeping doing what they are doing (nothing)? Why should somebody go find a job if they can get a similar amount in unemployment pay forever? Like I said, if the freebies are there, the poor class will just keep getting larger and larger. Not that hard of a concept...
