And you handed them the wallet out your pocket for free

from Brother Ali – Work Everyday Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The death of the union job, the decline of the middle and poor as the rich suck up all the profits, has been done by the 1% to increase their profits. The reason you’re so close to the edge is because they de-industrialized here and took the jobs overseas. And you get all hopped up on thinking you’re like the Minutemen in the Revolution, and standing up for ‘Liberty’ but you just end up giving more ‘Property’ to the rich.
