Give me ONE example of an industry where the "average wage" has risen $5.00/hr. ONE. I guarantee, you can not. With inflation running as high as it is (dollar down 40% of it's value since 2001 thanks to idiotic economic policies), the TRUE BUYING power of the AVERAGE american has fallen sharply.

No, you aren't "pro-Bush", you just act like it.

So ALL the men on your street are gainfully emplyed and happy, eh?

Liar.

yes, 92 and 93 WERE very bad years, that is why we voted in Clinton, who turned around the obscene deficit spending, shored up the dollar's value in doing so, had a budget surplus the last two years in office AND actually paid DOWN on the national debt.

Unfortunately, he also followed through on G.H.W. Bush's insane NAFTA policy, hence the rapid decline in manufacturing jobs in the US.

And of course, Junior immediately gave the surplus to the ultra-wealthy with his obscene "tax cuts" that went almost entirely to the top 1% income earners. Unbalancing the budget because he not only didn't cut spending proportionately, but actually increased spending while cutting income (taxes).

Are you in sixth grade? or just trolling?

Go way, collect your propaganda check from your ditto-head bosses, 'kay?

I see, I am supposed to believe your chart is made up of off-shore divers.

Got it. So, what do these divers I am supposed to ask manufacture?

Try again, and name one industry where wages have gone up $5.00/hr under Bush's watch.

Birth/Death model used is complete nonsense. Numbers are actually worse than they appear. Do your homework!

I am not "asking" nurses or divers anything. SHOW ME PROOF.

You allege that ALL wages, by your chart, show an average increase of $5.00/hr.

PROVE IT.

I see, you can not prove your chart isn't phony.

YOU state that ALL wages, on average, show an increase of $5.00/hr the last 10 years.

PROVE IT.

With a drop in dollar value of 40% the last 7 years, tell me how HAPPY these nurses , divers ( I know several) and motorcycle mechanics are under "Borrowing Bush and Printing Press Greenspan's" policies?

Tell me how much they enjoy paying three times as much for food, because the value of their dollar has declined 40%.

Tell me how much they enjoy negative value on their mortgages while crowing "things aren't so bad."

The average citizen does not make the wages that are listed, most make minimum wage or just above it. In our county every major plant in the entire county is now closed. That includes chicken proccessing, cotton proccessing, cloth makers (burlington), the convenience stores don't even offer employment opportunities, they are all owned by Indian families and only employ family. There have been a few small plants open affording 50 or less jobs for the community. Going north of here was a trend to look for a plant job, but no more, they have all closed too. Sorry, but it looks pretty bleak around here.

The only hike in wages around here is the slowly implemented hike of minimum wage to 7.25 an hour. I have several freinds who are registered nurses, the average per hour rate between them is around 13.00 per hour.

You haven't shown any proof, at all. You cherry pick a few VOCATIONS that have shown an increase in demand (aging populations), and call it "proof."

Not quite.
