The other day I was talking to a friend about an upcoming a company car show. All the employees of this rather large company bring their cars and show them off.
My friend was grumbling about how the show would be mostly the managers’ and company higher ups’ expensive restoration cars. The unspoken undertone was: It’s a bunch of overpaid old men reliving their youth — at the expense of all the hourly wage workers’ wage packets.
Still, my friend was taking a shiny red sports car.
It’s one of a number of cars my friend — an hourly wage worker — owns.
I was good, I didn’t say a thing. But I was thinking thisproved Robert Burns point, made over 225 years ago,
