The richest people in the world (e.g. bankers, CEOs, media moguls, so called "job creators") don't actually work. They have other people work for them. They rake in millions of dollars while the people doing the actual work have to deal with lower pay and higher taxes.
And then the rich folks spend their unearned money on politicians, essentially controlling congress (both Republicans and Democrats).
