National and global income inequality are becoming a growing issue that will need to be addressed. The top earners benefited more from the economic recovery than the bottom earners. In the United States, the top 10% receive more than 50% of total income. Inequality has grown thanks to outsourcing and companies replacing workers with technology.
Income inequality refers to the extent to which income is distributed in an uneven manner among a population. Income disparities have become so pronounced that America’s top 10 percent now average more than nine times as much income as the bottom 90 percent. Americans in the top 1 percent tower stunningly higher.
Income inequality in the United States is the extent to which income is distributed in an uneven manner among the American population. It has fluctuated considerably since measurements began around 1915, moving in an arc between peaks in the 1920s and 2000s, with a 30-year period of relatively lower inequality between 1950–1980.
