wages have stayed flat for a decade,
profits over that time has soared,
it does not take a maths genius to figuar out what happened,
the rich decided to lobby government to take ever larger shares of the productivity and efficiency gains,
while ensuring the labourers could not get their "fair share"
i am reminded of the idea of free trade, it helps the owners,
it pits the labourers against any nation that treats its labourers like slaves.
you have to lower wages to compete.
you cant fault the graph, or try to say people are better of now that they were 10 years ago.
if this is left to continue, the workers and labourers will have no money to buy products and the country is finished by greed starving the economy to
star and flag
