My point was that it's subjective. Paying a "fair share" also would need to imply that people are being fairly compensated. There is no way everyone is being compensated fairly. If you've ever seen that TV show undercover boss, you'll generally see the CEO sucking wind and realizing that he/she has no idea what real hard physical labor is all about. Of course we as a society have no problem looking down our noses at people that do manual labor for a living, and then blasting them for not paying their "fair share".
