A Double Stigma?

From CNN Career Builder.
High salaries have a nasty stigma attached them. One that reeks of years of school, advanced qualifications, extensive training and many years of experience, which some people just don't have.
Yet politicians routinely attach to people with high salaries the stigma that they are undeserving, liars, crooks, lazy, and borderline criminals. They want me to have contempt for them so that I will want to tax them heavily, and relabel the rest as the "working class."
