According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, there was tremendous disparity in real after-tax income. CBO finds that between 1979 and 2007:

For the 1 percent of the population with the highest income, average real after-tax household income grew by 275 percent (see figure below).
For others in the 20 percent of the population with the highest income, average real after-tax household income grew by 65 percent.
For the 60 percent of the population in the middle of the income scale, the growth in average real after-tax household income was just under 40 percent.
For the 20 percent of the population with the lowest income, the growth in average real after-tax household income was about 18 percent.

For the 20 percent of the population with the lowest income, the growth in average real after-tax household income was about 18 percent.

As a result of that uneven income growth, the distribution of after-tax household income in the United States was substantially more unequal in 2007 than in 1979: The share of income accruing to higher-income households increased, whereas the share accruing to other households declined.

Wall Street bankers have stolen homes and jobs from people all over this country. Many of them not only don't pay ANY TAXES but get money back from the government (you and me). It amazes me that anyone does not support Occupy.
