The American Dream is Statistically Dead


*For 2 generations in a row, 50% of people are earning less than what their parents earned during their careers.

*It's actually a distribution of wealth reason.  Starting in the 80s, executives made 3 times as much as the 'backbone' employees in any particular company.  Today, executives make 30 times that amount.


*One of the less obvious causes is inflation.  While it's acknowledged that wages have stagnated, people forget that a stagnate wage loses value over time due to inflation.  There are 2 causes.  The 1st is easy - GREED.  The 2nd cause is outsourcing employment overseas, so yeah - GREED.


*Since the 1980s, the wage gap between executive class and the worker class has increased.
