Mother Jones : It’s the Inequality, Stupid
Mother Jones has eleven charts that shows just how bad the income inequality in America really is.
How Rich Are the Superrich?
A huge share of the nation’s economic growth over the past 30 years has gone to the top one-hundredth of one percent, who now make an average of $27 million per household. The average income for the bottom 90 percent of us? $31,244.
But remember teachers, cops, and firefighters make to much. We better bust up those unions so the rich can get richer.
