It takes a lot more effort for the poor to go up the ladder. Not only does not the poor have more obstacles to hop through, the rich also has more resources and opportunities to get to the next level.
It all depends on where the person is born, and of what race. It may sound off-topic but wealth is largely driving my govt policies. Fortunately in Singapore, it is much easier for the poor to become rich or at least live a comfortable life. Not the easiest in the world, but easy enough. But there are still traces of racism which puts the minorities at a slight disadvantage.
The poor definitely has to work much harder than a rich person. Wealth creation is harder than preservation.
