A shocking video has gone viral, detailing facts and figures about America's distribution of wealth

A simply edited, alarming yet informative video has come to light, detailing America's perception of its distribution of wealth. The video breaks things down into three categories; what Americans perceive wealth distribution to be, what the 'ideal' wealth distribution looks like, and what it really is – and it's been watched more than 12 million times on YouTube.

Shocking figures include the claim that 1% of America owns 40% of the nations wealth, and that some CEO's are earning in one hour what it takes an average employee an entire month to make, at the same company. See for yourself and make up your own mind what's fair...
 

Key moments of the 6-minute video include: 1:05, 1:41, 3:50, 5:20, and 5:50.
