The Top 1% Everyone Hates

The protestors of the OWS movement are protesting the fact that 1% of the population owns all of the world's wealth.

Who exactly are the top 1%? George Soros? Bill Gates? Steve Jobs? Dick Cheney?

I invite you to enter your annual salary into this calculator. You'll be surprised.

If your household makes more than $48,000 per year then you're in the top 1%.
