Link. All the income in this country goes either to workers (people who make stuff) or to owners (people who own stuff). When it goes to workers, it's called "salary" or "wages". When it goes to owners it's called "profits" or "interest" or "dividends" or "capital gains". What this chart shows is that the part of the nation's income that goes to workers has fallen from about 67% to about 57%. Is that sustainable? What happens when more and more income goes to people who don't work, and less and less goes to people who do?
