The top 1?%. 

Pat Garofalo of Think Progress reports that the top 1% (people making more than $350,000 annually) captured 93% of income gains in 2010.  To put it another way, the lucky 99% got to share that extra $7 of every new hundred dollars of income.  Socially inequality has grown since the collapse of 2008.  The people who benefited most from the crash are also benefiting from its aftermath.  This is not a good sign for working people in America.
