This chart reveals just how the select few have been increasing their wealth while the bottom 90% hang on by their knuckles. A quote from Business Insider states:

“Basically, the charts show that, starting in the early 1980s, a 60-year trend changed, and most of the country’s wealth gains started going to the top 10% of the population. In other words, the charts show how 90% of the country has gotten shafted over the past 30 years, and especially over the past 10.”
