The Top One Percent Took An Even Bigger Piece Of The Pie In 2012 [Shocking Video]
The earnings gap between the richest one percent of Americans and the rest of the country has reached an all time high, and this shocking video shows that most of us don’t even realize how bad it is.
The disparity between the top 1% and everyone else has grown drastically in the past three decades. The top 1% has 19.3% of the income — the highest since they had 18.7% in 1927.
Those numbers are shocking, but when you watch the video below you’ll be even more appalled. The biggest thing about the gap is that most Americans have no real grasp on how big it actually is. Not because we are dumb, or unaware of the inequality, but because the gap is so large that it’s hard to put it into explainable terms.
Watch the report below and see for yourself.
