"New York inequality is really quite staggering"
PBS NewsHour Weekend Correspondent William Brangham is reporting on Mayor Bloomberg's legacy for Wednesday's program. Brangham asks: "As New Yorkers pick their candidates for Mayor today, how serious is inequality in NYC?"
"New York inequality is really quite staggering. If you compare the incomes of the top 20% to the bottom 20% -- the highs and the lows -- our income ratios are worse than many developing African countries." - Rick McGahey, The New School for Public Engagement
