How to mend the problem?

Yes, this is a big problem, and China must develop a solid middle class to which the majority of the population would belong.

How to do this?  Here's some of my suggestions:

1) A significant income tax on the rich -- a higher percentage than what the middle class would pay.  The money from this tax should be invested in programs that would elevate the income status of the rest of the country, such as....

2) Providing free education to all children through the high school level.  Education is the key to better jobs and will close the gap between poor and rich.

3) A minimum wage for all workers in China.

4) Incentives such as low-interest loans for people wishing to set up small businesses.

I agree that the gap is natural

    The gap is natural, I agree with it.
    If we divided the fortune usdollars 1 million  into 100 persons, the persons have equivalent education and social background, I believe 5 years later, some of them will become very rich, while some will be in middle class, and other may be poor.
   Opertunity is equility, but why always show appriciation for some person? this is a problem we should think about.

make the gap smaller via our efforts ......

Yes, the gap between the poor and the richer is inevitable, but it is not natural, due to the lopsided economical development.  Generally speaking, we should make the gap smaller.
Also, I don't agree with the above laqisunny's said that "If we divided the fortune usdollars 1 million into 100 persons, the persons have equivalent education and social background, I believe 5 years later, some of them will become very rich, while some will be in middle class, and other may be poor. "
The real situation we should face at present, that there are many poor families in China we should to help them, to let their children to have the equal right to be educated same as the children of richman. It is the point.
