Income Inequality  
Remains Near Record
        Levels

Madison, Wis., June 2016--
The income gap between the
rich and the poor remains
near its highest level ever,
according to a new report by
the
Wisconsin Budget
Project and COWS at UW
Madison.
The wide chasm
between the very highest
earners and everyone else
poses hardships for Wisconsin’
s families, communities, and
businesses.
In 2013, 15.9 percent –
nearly 1 out of every 6 dollars
of income in Wisconsin –
wound up in the pockets of
the top 1 percent of earners.
That group has an average
income of $888,000. The
share of income going to the
top 1 percent in Wisconsin
has more than doubled since
the 1970s.

community leader, legislator, and father, he set a high bar for public service
within the Asian Pacific American community," said Leslie Moe-Kaiser, OCA
National President.

"Takai was a strong advocate for the Asian American and Pacific Islander
communities during his time in Congress, as evidenced by his support for
reuniting the families of Filipino veterans of WWII. His introduction of the
Filipino Veterans Family Reunification Act was instrumental in bringing about
much-needed immigration justice for the families of those deserving
veterans. His passing was an incredible loss for both our communities and
the entire American community," concluded Moe-Kaiser.
