A positive consideration will be offered to more productive rethinking of relationships. This paper reviews the Rich/Poor Conflict by identifying what are that causes of the gap between the two opposing groups. How have they been affected by poverty, inequality and welfare in the globalized economy? The paper will look at the meaning of living wage and the difference of expectation of the 1%. The treatment of the common worker and this has led to a wage gap between those in power, plus a shrinking middle class and increase of the working poor. These are not a new issue but a continuing one because according our social order was constructed by the powerful for the powerful under the guise of a “trickle down” market as the worker would supposedly benefit from increased revenues of the company. Our economic system emphasizes cooperation in our society through everyday interactions and a shared belief system. It basically states that in order to have a functioning society, we need some people at the “top” and others at the “bottom.”, which is a social construct of oppression that leads to conflict. The issue or concern of Globalized economy that it does not take in consideration significance of the view of first world countries.
