The wealth gap is growing.
It is bigger than it’s ever been, with CEOs and the top 0.1 percent of households owning nearly a quarter of the country’s wealth, according to a new report from the Center for Responsive Politics.
The chart above shows the percentage of wealth held by the top 1 percent of earners and their top 1% families, adjusted for inflation.
The gap between the rich and everyone else has widened to almost 30 percent in the last 30 years.
Inequality has widened since the mid-1960s, with the bottom 90 percent of Americans having seen their wealth rise by almost a trillion dollars since 1960.
But the wealth gap hasn’t been as severe as it was in the 1980s, when CEOs and their families owned nearly 40 percent of the nation’s wealth.
But, according in the report, this wealth gap could be even wider.
It’s a problem because we’ve seen companies move away from benefits and into stock options, retirement plans and 401(k)s.
These types of investments have a bigger impact on wealth than retirement accounts, which have historically been considered less risky because they are less likely to change hands.
“The wealth gap, which we know exists, is growing faster than incomes and the ratio of wealth to income,” said Robert Katz, a senior fellow at the Center.
“We see this inequality in the U.S. because of the way that people work, and because people work harder.
But there’s also a huge opportunity for employers to use the wealth they have in these investments to create wealth.”
Katz noted that while the wealth of CEOs has risen, the average American worker has lost ground, because the U.”s share of workers in the workforce has declined since the 1980-90s.
This decline is particularly pronounced in the bottom 40 percent.
That’s because the economy has shifted from a high-wage economy to a low-wage one.
The share of the U.-born population with at least a bachelor’s degree dropped from 47.5 percent in 1995 to 37.9 percent in 2016.
This is largely due to a lack of college degrees.
Katz said it’s not just the lack of a college degree that is the issue.
And the shift to technology has had a big impact on jobs. “
It was a whole lot of new things coming into the workplace that were not the same things that used to be,” he said.
And the shift to technology has had a big impact on jobs.
The number of part-time workers who are unemployed or underemployed rose by 20 percent between 2000 and 2016, according the report.
This includes many part-timers who had been working part- time for a long time.
These part- timers, who make up about half of all workers, now make up more than 10 percent of all unemployed workers.
“There’s been a lot of turnover,” Katz said.
“That means that a lot more of the workforce is looking for work.
There are people who are starting to leave the labor force, or getting fired.
And people who can no longer find work are starting looking for it.”
And that means more of that inequality.
“These are the types of things that can cause a lot for people,” Katz added.
He pointed to a study from the Pew Research Center that found the share of U..
S.-born adults who had less than a high school diploma fell from 44 percent in 1990 to 22 percent in 2014.
And, the share who had a high level of college education rose from 36 percent in 1994 to 45 percent in 2013.
In contrast, the overall share of adults who did not have a college education increased from 28 percent in 1980 to 46 percent in 2010.
The report notes that although the share in the labor market has increased since the 1990s, the gap between rich and poor has widened.
Katz added that the rising inequality has also made it harder for workers to hold down a middle-income job.
“Even in today’s jobs, you have a higher risk of losing your job than if you were in a position of strength in the past,” Katz told Fortune.
“You’re looking for a better deal, and you have less flexibility because you’re in a better position to negotiate.
That makes it harder to hold a middle class job.”
And, this has led to the rise of the new jobs of the super-rich.
This has been true in many sectors, including health care, education, finance and technology.
In the case of health care and education, this is because employers have more to lose.
For example, the report notes there were more than 1 million fewer people in the health care sector in 2017 than there were a decade ago.
And more than half of the jobs in finance and tech have been lost over the past three decades, the study notes.
The wealth divide has also been the source of income inequality in many other sectors.
The income gap between men and women is widening, but women are still earning more than men. And for
