GRAPHIC: How Our Broken Tax System Rewards the Rich and Ignores Hard Work

Infograph shows how the tax system contributes to economic inequality.

If we value hard work in the United States, why does the tax system give special treatment to income that people don’t actually have to work for?

This is the question posed by advocacy group United For A Fair Economy who developed a hard-hitting infograph late last year to reveal major holes in our broken tax system which favor the rich and ignore the poor, as Upworthy reports.
