These days, it’s hard to recognize that America. The wage stagnation that began in the late ’70s has since bestowed on us the kind of income inequality more typical of a third-world oligarchy. The real minimum wage is less than it was in 1968, and the richest 1 percent of Americans take home nearly 25 percent of the country’s income, as compared with the 9 percent they earned in 1974.
The above is what many seem not to realize. Also, I have spoken to several people in real life who seemed not to be terribly concerned about S 1867. I would like comments on it or news of it, as Obama has apparently signed the HR vcomersion of it with this comment.
