Report: Income Inequality Widening In The District

The District of Columbia has one of the highest levels of income inequality of any large city in the country, according to a new report by the D.C. Fiscal Policy Institute. Researchers also found that the average income for the top 5 percent of D.C. households is the highest of any major urban enclave in America.
