Capitalism has failed us.
The year is [editor please insert current year here], and we still have an economic system where the rich people just continue to get richer, while the poor suffer by also getting richer.
We must look to socialism for a more equitable system, one in which there are no upper or lower classes---well, at least one in which there is no upper class. We must look to socialism, where wealth isn't created just to be distributed unevenly, but rather isn't created at all. Only then can we have an economic system where the rich don't get a lot richer and poor people don't have to undergo the terrible fate of only getting a little bit richer.
Of course, in this radical new system, some people will need to oversee things for a while, and naturally, they will make a little more money than the lower classes temporarily. For this tough job, I nominate myself.
