Spoilers alert if you haven't seen the movie.
Ben Affleck plays Bobby Walker, a white collar employee on a 6 figure salary, with a nice house, a couple of cars (including a porsche), a wife and two kids, who loses his job when his company downsizes in the middle of a recession. Another, older employee "pushing 60" is also later made redundant.
The movie tracks their lives after leaving the company, showing their financial struggles, and in particular, their inability to make their mortgage payments.
Maybe it's just me, but when I see people driving nice cars on 6 figure salaries, I would have assumed that they had enough IQ to put away significant sums for a rainy day and had the smarts to make some passive income on the side (ie. from shares). Or are they perhaps just like any other "ordinary" people who generally live day to day, because their expenditure, relatively speaking, is the same percentage as people who make less money?
Just wanted to know what others thought
