Not necessarily a revolution. A redistribution of wealth, as I said. Sometimes it's done willingly to appease the people and prevent revolution. Sometimes it's a violent uprising.

I could direct you to a good book to read on this subject but I assume you're not interested.
Capitalism has legitimized wage slavery for too long and the right have gotten too bold and greedy about it. There's not even any pretense anymore. Their day will come.

Macedonian Empire defeated by Rome, no revolt
Roman Empire - no large economically based revolutions
Qin and Han Dynasties - no large economically based revolutions
The list literally goes on and on.
All with huge income inequities.
