Recent TFN stories have revealed Scotland's 4 richest families have as much money as the poorest 20% of the population, 35 top Scottish executives earn on average 77 times the minimum wage, and Facebook pays less tax than an average UK employee. Meanwhile, the poor are not getting any richer and queues at foodbanks are growing. So, what's that answer? TFN editor Susan Smith argued this week that the rich have to start paying their fair share. Do you agree? Is it time we started talking about increaing tax again? What do you think?
