And it's this growing issue of income inequality that seems to anger people the most. Overall salaries and wages haven't even kept pace with inflation over the past few years.
And why is it that most of the gains have gone to the people at the top?
Well that will inevitably happen in a stagnant or shrinking economy because more people are unemployed, under employed or working part time.
In a stagnant economy it is an employers market the employer can afford to pay lower wages and give less generous raises.
This is Obamas economy. He can no longer blame the poor economy on Bush because he and the Democrats have had their way for over 5 years.
This failing economy is the results of rampant socialist policies and a hate the rich campaign led from the top by Nancy Pelosi and Obama.
The rich may be fairing better than the middle class but only because the laws of economics dictates that they will.
DH and I are near the top with combined incomes. I haven’t had a raise in three years, but my taxes and cost of living keep going up. We don’t make anywhere near even 1/2 way to 7 figures, but pay 6 figures in income taxes. I expect that # to go up again this year. In addition I am losing more and more of my freedoms with the gun grabbing morons here in Colorado. Please tell me how I am getting richer and richer and benefitting out of proportion? But then it is evil of me to even ask the question..... /s
