Employment =/= Employment

Median income is basically back to 1994 levels. People are "employed", but in far worse jobs, and have gone from full time to part time.

Not all jobs are equal. True unemployment is about 12-13%, but what is more worrying is the drastic drop in income.

Personal views/examples of the state of the economy aren't the best indicator of the same.

That said, he is in fact the "majority" when objectively examined.
