These days, the average American has to deal with a lot. The news is full of strife and controversy, jobs are plentiful but frequently don’t pay, and we all live on a giant rock that’s rapidly flooding and overheating. It’s stressful, and sometimes you just want to buy a coffee instead of making it, watch some Netflix, or go out to lunch every once in a while.
Yep, it’s called stagnant wages, they haven’t risen and in fact have gone down (relative to inflation) over the past 40 years. Hey, but the super rich have gotten richer! Three cheers for them!
