I fail to see why you think it takes so long to move up. Some were never meant to move up and thats ok too. At most every job I ever did the responsibility's kept piling on me very quickly. I worked 3rd shift my entire senior year of high school. 6 months after I graduated I was 4th key in a supermarket with 100 employees and was running the place 1-2 nights a week. I had guys twice my age under me who had 3 times my seniority. The point is not everyone is cut out to be management or owners. And the Gems that are, stick out instantly and quickly move through the ranks. Worker point of view is little more than a euphemism for Marxist loser. The right to life liberty and pursuit of happiness is just a clever way of saying you have an equal opportunity to make your way in the world. Not an equal outcome that has been tried over and over and it never works. All that does is disincentivize your most industrious people.
