Economic Inequality – It's Worse Than We Think
How Far Would You Go To Fix this Picture?
Recent studies reveal that most Americans underestimate the cleavage between the best-and-worst paid workers in America. Most people believe the difference is $30 earned by the best-paid workers for every $1 received by the worst paid workers, while – in fact – for every $1 the worst paid workers earn, the best-paid receive $354. Interestingly, studies also reveal that while one's political identification determines her or his discourse on increasing economic fairness – or how much of an increase there should be – people from across the political spectrum basically agree on what is fair, and the reforms they'd like to see – or not to see – put in place.
