We are the 1%

For all the Occupy protesters in the US:  in order to be counted among the world’s richest 1 percent, a single individual has to earn just $34,000 a year. (according to CNN.com)  The average individual income in America, including part-time workers, is $32,140.  Full timers only earn $39,336 per year.

Members of the planet’s true middle class live on just $1,225 per year.
