Going for a pint with millionaire CEOs is always amusing, just pretend you can relate to their problems and watch how they quickly change subject if you start talking about yours.

"Oh man I didn't know it is so bad!"
Just never mention anything about pay rise etc or how the company does not pay enough. It's an instant downer, ideally don't talk about the work at all in such setting.
It's acceptable to say "yeah I keep saving / investing man, hopefully one day I'll be like you".

The U word
I grew up walking my dog to picket lines, just because. I started work in era and a place where simply saying the U word was instant dismissal. I worked in one factory where I was nicknamed "International Hero of the People", sarcastically of course, simply for standing up for my rights - not even other peoples rights.
It's rarely just about money, it's mostly about respect, something that British management have failed to learn. I don't have a dog now, can't really walk now, but I wish these workers well. The gross level of inequality and poverty is not just unfair and unjust, it's unacceptable and unsustainable.
