Leftover sends this, a cool interactive chart from Economic Policy Institute.
Come to find out, I’m underpaid.
Come to find out, most of us are.
Well, that bites it.
Seriously bites it. If wages were still tied to productivity, as they were prior to 1979, the minimum wage would be over $17 dollars an hour. Without the neoliberal redistribution of wealth, as illustrated in that graphic, we would all be making 50-60% more. Minimum.
An experiment to see if embedding code works here…
Well…sort of…but not really. Sorry.
I’ve had very little luck with embed codes, but I appreciate your trying.
At least it linked to the chart. Which is better than the last time I tried.
I thought with all the new HTML5 stuff it might work.
