The huge discrepancy in wages means that the small number of people who are already wealthy (the 1 percent) grow richer while a much larger majority of people (the 99 percent) struggle to make ends meet.  The growing discrepancy also threatens to eliminate the middle class, leaving only the very poor and the very rich.
