Inquiring minds would like to know your opinion on high income earners.

What percent of high income earners in the US came from a disadvantaged background? For the purpose of this discussion we will set the threshold at $250k.

Disadvantaged for the purpose of this poll is defined by 1 or more of the following

Coming from a household below the poverty level

Being raised in a one parent household

Having abusive parents who were drug addicts or alcoholics

Not having funds to pay for college

Not having the things that many of us take for granted. ie proper nutrition, a safe home, ect

Not looking for a political discussion here.

Vote above

Is that $250k household or individual?

What constitutes "disadvantaged"?



Also---just putting this out there-- I seriously doubt this thread is going to stay out of the debate forum.

I personally know one guy who started from nothing. I mean nothing. Nothing, as in couldn't afford to go back to school to get his stuff much less continue his education. He sold his multimillion dollar company last year.

Are you starting a debate about that? Got any data? Is it interpolated?

in-terp-oh-lated, by the way. Because it irks that one guy who wanted it presented that way in the trends.

Lets see how long we can keep this dicussion out of the debate forum. Many of us dont have a premium membership and can not participate.

It's easy, just keep politics out of it

I still don't know whether the $250k is household or individual income.
