18 things that used to be for everyone until rich people made them too expensive.

It's hard to find a free or even an inexpensive thing to bring you joy. And even if you do, rich people will figure out how to charge you for it.

A recent Reddit thread asked, "What are some things that used to be for poor people until rich people ruined them?" The answers prove that nothing is safe, not even pork belly.

1. Rich people can ruin entire towns.

Every little cool mountain town in the American west. - ozarkbanshee

Move in, build their million dollar mansion, and spend the next decade complaining about how the internet is spotty, the electricity goes down during blizzards, and mountain lions keep killing their Shih-tzus.

I’ve seen it so many times. - Northern_nerd79

2. Justice for Cons!

ComicCons used to be pretty affordable, and you could chat with celebrities for awhile.

Now they are a huge extravaganza, with multiple levels of admission and VIP access and VIP seating. Pictures and autographs with bigger celebrities can cost a shitload, and you wait in multiple lines and are rushed through it.

When I went(pre-Covid) I normally just see/buy art, those folks are usually not super busy and will often sign stuff for free.(unless they are big dudes like Frank Miller) - 3-DMan
