Jail sentences for discriminating against the poor?

Among the bits and piece I've read this morning, from France, Bill aims to lock up offenders who pick on the poor

I wonder what provision will be made for offenders who 'pick on' the rich? Then I wondered if the Greens might like this piece of legislative insanity.

On a more cheerful note, there should be fewer poor to discriminate against according to research from the US;

51 percent of individuals said they are better off than their parents at the same age and only 24 percent said they are worse off.
The frequency that individuals felt better off was constant across socioeconomic starting points, except for individuals whose parents both had a bachelor's degree. 
Only 40 percent of individuals whose parents both hold a bachelor's degree said they are better off.
