This thread is for collar commentators.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Mentally  you don´t  fit in it.
Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

We have blue collar workers earning more than white collar workers in the West

True in my area, plumbers, electricians, building contractors are all making $60-$70 an hour. I may just push my boy toward the trades, there is always work if you are good at it.

Try it sometime.No holidays,no sick days,no vacations.Almost all construction jobs are not heated or cooled.Try working on a  60 story building in the dead of winter with no walls for protection.Try working on a pan slab in the summer,where the soles of your shoes melt.Then you have to go home and have your wife waiting to go out,because she was stuck in the house all day

Did I say they were overpaid? I agree with you it is hard work and yes I have done it for a short period as a common laborer, you earn every dollar of it by the old fashion way, just plain hard work. However you need people to do this work, not everyone can sit in an office or some shop, someone had to build those places and maintain them, for the people with the talent and inclination to do this work my hat is off to them.
