Wages are down in case you have not noticed.
" U.S. jobs pay an average 23% less today than they did before the 2008 recession, according to a new report released on Monday by the United States Conference of Mayors.
In total, the report found $93 billion in lost wages.
Jobs lost during the recession paid an average $61,637. As of 2014, jobs in the same sectors paid an average of $47,171 annually.
“Under a similar analysis conducted by the Conference of Mayors during the 2001-2002 recession, the wage gap was only 12% compared to the current 23%–meaning the wage gap has nearly doubled from one recession to the next,” stated the Conference of Mayors in a statement.

I already knew more than eyebrows would be raised when a link posted to Al Jazeera on DP. Now the cons can go to the drug store and purchase their Maalox or Excedrin and use as directed.
Mainly because the following view them as a competitor, and is largely dismissed by cons and right wind media and their followers who slurp up lies like it was pablum.
