Finland -Income gap widens -November 02, 2013

According to Statistics Finland the highest earning 10% receive about five and a half times the income of the lowest paid. Furthermore, the gap between the top earners and those worst-off continues to grow, despite many claims to the contrary. Nevertheless, by global standards, Finland can still boast that it is the most egalitarian nation in terms of the wage gap between rich and poor.
