For years, many Americans have struggled to get by due to stagnant wages. The rich don’t have that problem.

Mississippi
The top 1% makes 16.9 times more than the bottom 99%

Maryland
The top 1% makes 17.0 times more than the bottom 99%

North Carolina
The top 1% makes 17.7 times more than the bottom 99%

Virginia
The top 1% makes 17.7 times more than the bottom 99%

Louisiana
The top 1% makes 20.7 times more than the bottom 99%

Georgia
The top 1% makes 21.4 times more than the bottom 99%

Washington

In 10 states, the top 1% had double-digit income growth while incomes fell among the bottom 99%. These states were Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, South Carolina, Washington and Wyoming.

In 24 states, the top 1% of earners “captured between half and all income growth,” according to the paper, and in 19 states, 1 percenters “captured between 16.7% and just under half of all income growth.”

Notice that 8 of the 10 top states are all Damnocrat-run and 8 Republican southern states
