    Great news

    Average US salaries on the rise thanks to economic boom

    US employers are stepping on the accelerator — and that’s lifting average salaries and fueling record raises across many sectors. For the typical American worker, pay increases could soon surge past 4 percent or 5 percent for the year, according to labor experts.

    Guess that supply side works after all huh?

    Those gains will be wiped out by the tariffs.

    in my experience, raises haven't even kept up with inflation. sorry, Lucy, i'm not going for that trickle down kick, especially in a Tweetycult state.

    Employee pay (wages/benefits) is based on what is required to attract and retain qualified labor. If the federal MW (based on its 1938 or even its doubled 1939 value) had been indexed for inflation it would be under $5/hour today. Per capita federal spending has also greatly exceeded both wage growth and general inflation yet few express much concern over that explosive growth which, of course, primarily benefits those who supply the, all important, campaign cash and are awarded lucrative federal contracts and/or subsidies (including tax "loopholes").
