I suspect the capitalist fat cats feel the same as the union leaders.

Thing is, union membership has fallen sharply. Meanwhile, the "job creator class" is stronger than ever as there is no counterbalance to their power.

When "rich" people get money they tend to save or invest it.

When "poor" people get money they tend to spend it, often because they have a real need to.

Paraphrasing Jack Kemp, some 20+ years ago; "the rich do all the saving and investing, so the rich should have all the money". They're working on it Jack.
