There’s a growing wealth divide between the richest Americans and the rest of us. Just how much of a disparity might surprise you.

This YouTube video, posted by site user politizane and based on data from a Mother Jones post, shows the startling breakdown. We think you’ll be shocked at just how much of the nation’s wealth is held by the top 1%, and how little the bottom 80% actually have.

Watch the video to find out just how much the real picture of U.S. income inequality differs from the ideal disparity Americans would like to have.
