Income Inequality Illustrated in Six Cases

Nick Hanauer, an individual from Seattle who makes $10 Million+ per year, on income inequality:
"'If there were a shred of truth to the claim that the rich are our nation's job creators, then given how rich the rich have gotten, America should be drowning in jobs!'
"'So if the rich don't create the jobs,' I ask, 'who does?'
"'The middle classes!' Nick roars. 'A huge middle class will produce an unbelievable opportunity for capitalists.'"
