Americans wages need to grow faster, says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Jobs are not producing the wages that people need to meet their needs, Pelosi said at a Washington Post event. She continued:
And people still feel scarred by what happened in 2008 when their home [mortages] were underwater, their pensions were at risk, they were living off their savings, their childrens education [was] in doubt. So theres still that concern and 40 percent of the American people youve seen the figures over and over again cannot withstand a $500 unforeseen cost whether it is a [broken] water heater, a carburetor or whatever happens to be.

Carbs, how quaint.
I still use them.
A large part of the answer is what it has always been: stop the illegals from getting jobs and depressing wages, and get the ones already working OUT.
Stiff fines and/or imprisonment for the employers who employ them.
This administration needs to be as tough on this major issue as they are on trade.
I blame the entire financial debacle of 2008 on the Congress class of 2007 when Pelosi took over as Speaker and she started the sub-prime bubble based on the Clinton “Community Reinvestment Act”. It is a good thing I am not in charge of dispensing cumuppance.
Employers and employees speak the same language, and it ain't English!
