This is a horrible way to look at it. The genetic haves?

Eg: Someone who trained 60-80 hours per/wk to become a contemporary dancer, had to learn anatomy and physiology plus taxes, marketing, directing, choreography etc to get to the top of their field. They have a 10-15 year career earning barely enough to live on and sometimes need to take a job at walmart on top of their full-time job just to make ends meet.

This isn't about genetics. It isn't about "no drive", no interests, no striving, no talent etc. It's about corruption and greed. The top 10% of earners aren't more focused, they don't work harder, they're not genetically superior or any other bs!
